In August 2018, a new program debuted at Foster’s Home for Children. The SOAR (Safety, Ownership, Advancement, Responsibility) House opened its doors to accept up to seven young adults. The program is designed for young adults from ages 18-22, who have aged out of foster care and need a base of support beneath them as they transition to life on their own. This independent living program is ideally suited to Stephenville, which offers a junior college, a university, and many great employment opportunities. Residents are expected to maintain student status, employment status, or a combination of both. Guidance and counseling will be available for residents as they spread their wings on the runway to a successful adult life.
Interested applicants can call the Home at (254) 968-2143 for details.
