Forever Family: Saint Francis Ministries in Texas is moving into Stage II of CommunityBased Care in the Texas DFPS Region 1, serving 41 counties


LUBBOCK, TX – Saint Francis Ministries in Texas is excited to announce our
engagement in Stage II contract negotiations with the Office of Community-Based Care.
In this, Saint Francis will begin the transition of work within Region 1 in partnership
with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. We appreciate the
opportunity and confidence in moving to Stage II of Community-Based Care and look
forward to serving the children and families in Region 1 in a greater capacity.

“Everything we’ve done in Stage I has placed the foundation for a successful transition
to Stage II,” said Cristian Garcia, Vice President of Child and Family Services. “We know
that our success is dependent upon our community partnerships, and we’re grateful to
continue to build those relationships. Our success also is dependent upon the excellent
employees who give their hearts to this work–both those who work for us now, and the
employees we will hire as we move forward.”

Saint Francis Ministries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing
healing and hope to children and families. Saint Francis is the Community-Based Care
provider for Texas DFPS Region 1, which includes 41 counties in the Texas Panhandle
and South Plains.
