LUBBOCK- Officials at Texas Boys Ranch, now licensed for foster care and adoption, said they'll be helping more kids on the south plains than ever before find both temporary and permanent homes.
"What it just means is that we're able to continue the mission of sharing Jesus, healing hearts, and transforming lives to more children than ever before."
Executive Director John Sigle, has been with the Texas Boys Ranch for more than a decade.
Up until now, they've accepted children in need of a place call home on the Ranch.
"Foster care was just a natural extension of what we're already doing to make sure that we can provide the very best service and care to children that are in need," said Sigle.
Now, they're seeking homes for kids both on and off the Ranch.
"We're looking for loving, christian families," said program director, Angela Skorick. "They should be very patient, flexible, open-minded and understanding that these children have come from various backgrounds maybe than their own."
Skorick, who will be accepting applications from potential foster and adoptive families said that now, they'll be able to help more kids than ever.
"In foster homes they're allowed to take infants through 18-year-olds. They are able to take smaller children into these placements as well as keep siblings together."
