Admission Process:

All clients accepted into the Family Care program must complete an admission application and various steps of assessment. The first step is to complete an admission application below. This is followed by an intake interview for qualified applicants and Family Care staff. A written admissions assessment of the information gathered from the intake interview will be prepared, addressing the physical, educational, financial, medical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the client. The level of motivation on the part of the potential resident is a significant factor in determining cottage placement.

The following is required before admission can be considered:

  • Valid Texas Driver's License
  • Must be able to work or go to school full-time
  • Clean criminal background record

Additional information needed before admission can be considered is:

  • Birth certificate for each family member
  • Social security card for each family member
  • Immunization record for each child
  • Documentation of negative TB test results for mother
  • Automobile insurance and registration certificate
  • Child custody documents
  • Restraining order if applicable
  • Criminal background check

You have the option to submit your application online or visit our lobby at 1101 North Mays St, Round Rock, TX, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, to complete a paper application. After submitting your application to the Family Care office, our intake coordinator will reach out to discuss the next steps in the process. If it's determined that Family Care isn't the right fit, we can provide referrals to help meet your current needs.
