The Settlement Home is a private, licensed nonprofit that cares for children who come from abusive and neglectful backgrounds. Our mission is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. We serve individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect. Through a variety of services and programs, we are able to meet the specific needs of each individual we serve.
Our primary contract is through the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services. We receive a fee for service from Child Protective Services, which is based on a daily reimbursement rate for each child based on level of care. We also have contracts with juvenile probation and post-adoption services.
Funding received from these contracts does not cover the full cost of care. The Settlement Club raises funds through events and other efforts throughout the year to help bridge the funding gap so we are able to provide the highest quality of care possible.
