South Texas Office

South Texas Overview

Arms Wide Adoption Services is a leading provider of foster care, adoption, post adoption, and post permanency services in South Texas. Our South Texas office serves Coastal Bend and Rio Grande Valley families who are interested in foster care, adoption, and permanency support.

Arms Wide Adoption Services (formerly Spaulding for Children) has provided adoption and permanency services out of our South Texas office, located in Corpus Christi, since 2003. In 2020, we expanded our services to include foster care in response to the foster home capacity crisis that has left hundreds of children without permanent families. We currently offer high-quality, no-fee foster care, adoption, post adoption, and post permanency services to children and families in the following counties: Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Cameron, Duval, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, McMullen, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, Starr, Webb, Willacy, and Zapata.


South Texas Team

At Arms Wide Adoption Services, we begin with the child in mind. Each child is unique and the journey to finding the right family and home can be unpredictable. We expertly guide South Texas, Coastal Bend, and Rio Grande Valley families through the process, connecting each child to the right adoptive family and supporting them along the way and beyond. No matter where the path leads, our team embraces each family with warmth and compassion and holds their hand through the process, whether they are coming for foster care, adoption services or permanency support services.
