In 2014, a group of pastors and community leaders came together to address the need of family services in the Fulshear and Simonton areas. As a result, a new organization was formed, called Family Hope, to provide a place of compassion and transformation. Family Hope is the largest non-profit agency that exclusively serves northern Fort Bend County’s residents with medical assistance, food, rent and utility assistance, job searches, furniture and disaster relief.

Family to Family Adoptions has been a licensed child-placing agency since February 14, 2001. Since that time, we have placed over 475 babies/children for adoption with loving families like yours. We provide pre-placement and post-placement adoption services including home studies, counseling, and post placement reporting. We also work with birthmothers to ensure they are receiving adequate medical care.
We also have a contract with the State of Texas for foster care, foster to adopt care, and straight adoption through our foster care program. We specialize in kinship foster care.
Please feel free to contact us for more information or to ask questions.
The problem is so well-hidden that people often are shocked to learn about the growing number of homeless families in Fort Bend County. Based on a University of Texas study, there are between 6,000 and 9,000 homeless in Fort Bend in any given year, and nearly half are children seeking shelter with their families.
Housing, healthcare and other costs are soaring, and many low income families are just a paycheck away from losing their homes. Common causes of episodic homelessness are job loss, illness, injury, foreclosure, divorce and natural disaster.
Many people think of homelessness as “someone else’s problem,” but it carries both a financial and societal cost to everyone in a community. FBFP mobilizes an interfaith network of local congregations to help families regain their housing, their independence and their dignity. Utilizing existing church facilities, our committed volunteers provide safe overnight shelter, meals and support for a week at a time.
Our Housing Navigator helps each family develop an individualized plan to attain safe, affordable housing and develop the confidence and skills they need to achieve long-term independence.
FBFP also assists hundreds of other individuals each year through referrals and partnerships with other local social service agencies and resources. Together, we are providing cost effective solutions to complex problems.
Our West Campus is located at 1002 Wilson Drive, Rosenberg, TX 77471.
