GEORGE and MAGGIE AUNE
Thank you for believing in the mission of
Geary Foster Foundations
George and Maggie Aune, your generous donation of the land on which this community is to be built, provides a strong foundation for foster parents and displaced children to become a loving family because every child deserves a safe home.
EVERY CHILD DESERVES A SAFE HOME
Geary Foster Foundations has a mission to provide homes that are built on strong foundations where foster parents and mentors encourage strength, value, and self-worth for each foster child that enters its walls as a refuge. Supervised by Arrow Child & Family Ministries, each child will be supported and provided a respectful environment for healing where they will have the opportunity to safely grow and become productive members of society.
Thank you to our PARTNERS for contributing to our first home!
GEARY FOSTER FOUNDATIONS
RECOGNIZES THE NEED FOR FOSTER CARE
The need for foster care is tremendous and growing. Geary Foster Foundations will provide assistance to children from all over Texas. The ranch is located in Grayson County, 1 of 19 counties in Region 3 of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS).
According to DFPS statistics (Data Book, 2019), the total number of children placed in foster care, statewide as of June 2019, totaled 16,572 with 61% of those children being placed out of their counties.
These statistics prove there is a shortage of foster homes in Texas, and the need for foster homes far exceeds the availability. Geary Foster Foundations will provide a partial solution to this enormous problem within the foster care system.
We are building homes to build lives because we believe every child deserves a safe home!
