Review this Business/Team

The Burke Center for Youth has been providing hope and help for children in crisis since 1973, because it is better to build children than to repair adults.
Our mission is to promote healing and inspire hope for children in crisis. For the children who have suffered abuse and neglect, we provide safe and loving environments so they may form healthy relationships and look forward to a brighter future.
The children we serve at Pathfinders Ranch and through our Child Placement Agency are clients who are unable to live with their birth families for a variety of reasons.
Founded in 1973 by Rosemary Burke and developed by Rosemary and Charlie Campise into a 501(c)3 orginization. Pathfinders Ranch is our residential treatment center in Driftwood, Texas. We serve boys who are currently unable to live in a family setting due to traumatic events in their lives. Often the negative experiences they have endured lead to their inability to manage their behaviors effectively. We provide a structured setting where the boys can participate in skill building programs, change negative behaviors and set their feet on a path to rebuilding their lives. In 1990, The Burke Center for Youth received our license to operate a Child Placing Agency in order for us to support families who had a desire to foster children. We operate 6 offices and service 40 families with 120 children throughout the state of Texas. To complete the circle of support for the youth we serve, we also provide foster-to-adopt and matched adoption services to provide permanent, loving homes to Texas children whose parental rights have been terminated.
