The Giocosa Foundation is a non-profit child placing agency with a mission to match children with loving and nurturing families so they may form mutually satisfying and healthy relationships.
The Giocosa Foundation, founded in 1988, has grown from a small "mom & pop" agency, with our original mission to provide a non-institutional environment for children with significant emotional and behavioral deficit. Over the past twenty-eight years, Giocosa has since expanded our services to include basic, therapeutic, habilitative and pervasive developmental disorder foster care, as well as adoption services. Throughout that time, we have remained focused on our dedication to placing children with families committed to stabilizing a foster child’s environment.
With offices in Hutto, Belton, Dallas, Houston, Brownsville and Laredo, the Giocosa Foundation is able to help children and families throughout the state. We are licensed by the Texas Department of Family Protective Services and also partner with Travis County Juvenile Probation Department. Giocosa serves youth ages 0 - 18 years and partners with foster parents of all ethnicities, genders and backgrounds. On average, Giocosa has approximately 400 children in foster homes throughout the state.
