Residential Child Care

The Residential Child Care Program meets disadvantaged children's physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs in a warm family-like atmosphere where houseparents function as mother and father figures. Residents range in age from 5 to 18 and live in cottages with eight to ten children.

College and Career

Provides assistance for Arms of Hope high school graduates with support through college, trade school or into their first job and sometimes includes accommodations for graduates who have not yet found a place to call home.


Helps motivated single mothers and their children transition into successful, independent futures by providing parenting skills, career training and a home in a peaceful and safe environment.

Right Start

Makes life a real choice by helping expectant single mothers prepare for motherhood while providing shelter, necessities and skills needed to care for their newborn babies.

Family Outreach

Realizing that inner-city poverty stricken families are in desperate need of physical, emotional and spiritual services, Arms of Hope has initiated a Family Outreach Program. Currently in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Denton, AOH Family Outreach Centers provide an opportunity to connect with resources to help families deal with hardships and life's challenges that often stress a family to the point where they need hope, restoration, and guidance to find a path towards success and independence.
