Admissions For Services

Garden of Hope of Central Texas provides only Emergency Care Services. Short-term child care is provided to children who, at admission, are in an emergency situation constituting an immediate danger to the physical health or safety of the child.

The setting includes 12+ bedrooms, multiple resident baths with state of the art amenities including activity area, fitness space, nurses office, and dining area  along with an array of activities to keep children active and engaged.
