Sharon Grandberry has a vision. Her vision centers on enhancing the functioning of children and families by providing life-changing opportunities. In other words: “Helping people help themselves.”
In 1992, Sharon became licensed as therapeutic foster parent and began providing residential services to a teenage boy and his pregnant teenage sister. This led to a license from the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services (TDPRS) to operate an Independent Foster Family Home called “Get A Life” (GAL). This home specialized in caring for pregnant and parenting teens. GAL provided residential and case management services to young ladies between 12- 17 years of age who were emotionally challenged, and often pregnant or parenting a child under two years of age.
In 2001, the organization changed but the vision remained the same. The Grandberry Intervention Foundation (TGIF) was licensed by TDPRS to operate as a Child Placing Agency in 2003 and began contracting with Child Protective Services in 2004.
TGIF recruits, trains, and monitors families that provide foster care to abused and/or neglected children.
The Grandberry Intervention Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) agency and is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of hurting children.
