New Hope Children’s Shelter

New Hope Children’s Shelter was established in McAllen, Texas in fall 2014 when Upbring renovated and transformed an existing building into a home-like campus to help and support unaccompanied children.


New Hope Children’s Shelter is state licensed to care for children ages 6-17, but currently serves children 12-17 years of age. The children we serve at this facility receive lifesaving support including food, clothing, shelter, case management, education and clinical, medical and spiritual care.

Upbring makes sure that children at New Hope receive 24-hour support and supervision. Our goal is to encourage their personal and academic development and empower them with the skills and resources they need to have productive lives once they are reunified with family members or a sponsor.
