Who We Are

Reaching Those Who Need Help ---One Child, One Family At A Time...

They come to us every day, holding the hand of a social worker. Some are runaways escorted by the security of a policeman. Their eyes tell their stories. But once at the shelters, the children and teens know they’re safe. From the abuse, neglect, abandonment, and parental rejection. Some have come before; some will come again. They stay until it’s safe to go back home or out-of-home care can be found. Our shelters are a place for children to heal physically and emotionally. Children may remain in care for a few hours, or for several weeks, or for a few months.

The Children’s Aid Society, a non-profit agency, has been serving the children of North Texas since 1912, when our agency received its charter. CAS operates two programs: the Children’s Home and the Teen Emergency Shelter. Both shelters are licensed as Emergency Shelters and Assessment Centers through the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services. The Children’s Home and Teen Emergency Shelter are located on the same property, 1101 30th St., in Wichita Falls, Texas.
