We had the privilege of partnering with Target and the Harris County Precinct 4 Constables office to make the Christmas of some of our children in foster care just a little more special. Thank you Target and thank you to the heroes who helped our kids feel important!

ARROW ENJOYS HOUSTON ASTROS 2022 GAME 1!


Mattress Mack and Gallery Furniture kindly invited Arrow Child & Family Ministries to enjoy Game 1 of the ALDS as the Houston Astros faced off against the Seattle Mariners. Mattress Mack, Gallery Furniture and the entire McIngvale family have been longtime supporters of Arrow and the children and families we serve.

Arrow had a ton of fun cheering on the Astros! We made signs, showed off our Houston and Arrow pride, and enjoyed the postseason activities at the ballpark.



We had many kids joining the Arrow group, including many who had never been to a ballgame before. They got to enjoy ice cream, Cracker Jacks, and singing along to “Take Me Out to the Ballgame!” And they even received a “First Baseball Game” certificate from the staff at Minute Maid!



The Astros were losing to the Mariners for the entire game, until a historic walk-off three-run homerun by Yordan Alvarez. The Astros were down 5-7 in the bottom of the ninth inning, and there were two outs. The game was down to the final two strikes when Alvarez hit his incredible homerun.  It reminded us that no matter how bleak a situation looks, there is always hope!


Arrow is grateful to Mattress Mack for allowing us to cheer on the Astros and enjoy this wonderful afternoon! More importantly, we are grateful for the years of incredible support that Mack and the Gallery Furniture team have provided Arrow Child & Family Ministries. They have played a huge role in allowing us to pursue our mission: Helping Kids & Strengthening Families. #TogetherKidsWin

ARROW CONTINUES TO LEAD THE WAY IN TEXAS FOSTER CARE!


Arrow Child & Family Ministries CEO, Scott Lundy, was interviewed by KXAN in Austin this week about the current foster care crisis in Texas. He spoke about Arrow’s innovative Treatment Foster Care program, which gives families intensive trauma-informed training and provides them with the additional supports of a behavioral health specialist and a caseworker specially focused on TFC families.


Texas is in the middle of a foster care crisis, with hundreds of kids sleeping in offices because placements cannot be found for them. As Scott says, “there’s not a Texan out there that wants that to happen.”

A group of experts working to address this crisis agreed Treatment Foster Care programs, like the one Arrow created, are the best model to get children out of offices and into homes and families.
