Austin-based Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) hosted a luncheon in August to share news of its expanded adoption services in Austin and the surrounding area. The organization also has new locations in Wichita Falls and Dallas. The PCHAS adoption services team shared information about the PCHAS continuum of care and services to maternity clients, birth parents and adoptive families. President and CEO Ed Knight spoke about the agency’s #BirthMomStrong campaign and how PCHAS works to help Texas families grow. He says times are changing for adoption, and openness with birth parents and adoptive families is the new norm. “This is an exciting time for us,” says Knight. “We will be paying special attention to birth mothers as we expand to larger markets in Texas. We want birth mothers who are going through a very emotional time to know there is somewhere they can turn for emotional support and guidance.” PCHAS’ adoption program offers wrap-around services, which include counseling, guidance, adoption, help with proper legal process and education of all of the options available to birth parents and their adoptive families.
