DIRECTION61:3 is a faith-based non profit organization purposed with helping youth transition from foster care into society as thriving adults.
While recognizing the need for physical, emotional, and educational support among aging out foster youth, our highest priority is to direct all participants towards a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe this to be foundational in finding permanence and is the precedent for a successful future. Registered with the state of Texas in 2017, this ministry has full non-profit status as a 501c3 organization and was licensed in December 2020 by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as a Child Placing Agency.
We practice a holistic approach to aging-out by engaging foster youth in their teens, helping them during the transition process with career preparation, life-skills, and the building and establishment of life changing relationships. At the completion of their educational and relational goals we support them in career placement, the acquisition of affordable independent living, and the owning of their first car through our transportation initiative.
Most importantly however, we are a family whose ultimate goal is to establish permanent belonging for all residents. Primary to our ministry, this purposeful sense of belonging will carry our now established young adults throughout their lifetime.
