About us...


                In 1968, Philia Club of San Angelo recognized the need for a place to care for teenaged girls that could not live with their birth families. They soon enlisted other clubs, churches,  businesses, and individuals in a cooperative  effort that led to the creation of  our agency.  In the years that have followed,  the on-going support of our  Concho Valley community has made possible our con-

tinued operation and enabled us to widen our range of service to offer emergency care for children of all ages and help to ex-foster kids setting out on life on their own. Our organization is very  much  a community agency.    

The first residents of the Girls Home lived at McCaw Home, a big old house named for donors Drs. Bill and Blanche McCaw.  Haby Home was added in 1978, and Tucker Home—the first to be designed and built as a group home—in 1993.

    Then, in 2000, McCaw Home was consumed by fire. No girls were at the home at the time,  because it was spring break.  In the wake of the disaster, the Board decided to build a single modern residence to replace both old homes , along with a modern administrative complex, which also houses our Transition Center for ex-foster care kids.

             The Children’s Emergency Shelter was founded in 1978 and became part of our agency in 1996.  It was originally on Chadbourne Street, but was relocated to Tucker Home on Preusser Street in December 2014.
