Baptist Children’s and Family Services Shelter


FUMC and First Baptist Church (FBC) have partnered with Baptist Children’s and Family Services (BCFS) to open as a Medical Needs Shelter if needed. BCFS is contracted with the State of Texas to provide medical sheltering under state ordered evacuation during a disaster or public health emergency. When necessary BCFS will activate FUMC as a Medical Needs Shelter. BCFS provides everything to include all supplies, medical staff, security and food. We assist by providing space and few select volunteers, which we do in partnership with FBC. Should we be activated, we will also provide outreach information with any volunteer services or supplies needed.
