Christmas Home Tour

‘Tis the Season

Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s (CAFB) Christmas Home Tour began 31 years ago as a fundraiser by a core group of volunteers, many of whom are still involved, to keep the agency’s doors open. This handful of women decorated their homes a little extra for Christmas, filled the air with the aroma of home baked cookies, showcased the talents of their musical children, then charged sponsorships and admission. The tour was a success and is now a pinnacle Fort Bend County holiday tradition.

Each year a unique group of homeowners from varying neighborhoods participate by showcasing their incredible homes. There is now an eclectic variety of musical talent from adult and youth choirs, pianists, musicians and even a barbershop quartet. Cookies are baked by girls scout troops, youth in service and honors programs and generous women. CAFB has added fun elements, such as a wreath raffle where $10 offers a chance to win an extraordinary wreath of your choice and colorful custom designed holiday t-shirt’s which can be worn during the tour and throughout the season.

Over the years visitors have travelled from all over including groups from retirement communities, churches, high schools,  interior design field trips, and in ladies or couples’ groups via rented limousines, party or school busses and even a trolley. This is more than an event; it’s a kickoff to the holiday season with the added benefit of indirectly helping abused and neglected children.

CAFB is focusing on child abuse as a public health epidemic, and since 1991, has seen over 20,595 children and families with a staggering 20% increase year after year. In fact, over the last 9 years, CAFB has seen a 300% increase in services provided. CAFB’s is a non-profit agency with a vision to end child abuse. This vision requires participation from the entire community.
