The Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl is proud to be aligned with DePelchin Children’s Center in Houston as the Bowl’s honored charitable beneficiary. A portion of the proceeds of the game will be donated to this worthwhile institution establishing the Bowl’s lasting legacy to the community. DePelchin Children’s Center is the leading center in Texas for foster care and adoption services.

DePelchin Children’s Center believes that every child deserves to be safe and healthy.   An accredited foster care and adoption agency, DePelchin serves the most vulnerable children and families in Texas and works to break the cycles of abuse and neglect.  Our approach to caring for children integrates prevention, foster care, adoption and post-adoption programs to improve the mental health and physical well-being of children at risk of entering or within the State’s child welfare system.  Founded as an orphanage in 1892, DePelchin is a nonprofit organization with locations throughout Houston and across Texas and gratefully receives support from individuals, foundations, corporations, government grants and the United Way.

Our Vision — We envision a world in which every child is safe and healthy.
