"For decades Texans Care has been a leading advocacy voice and an effective catalyst for policy change."

We're here so Texas will meet the promise of every child.
Each child brings promise for our state. Yet when it comes to our children's health, protection, opportunities, mental health, and basic security, Texas is a long way from delivering on that promise. Our kids are falling behind those from other states.
Real statewide solutions--that would help more Texas kids grow up healthy, secure, and thriving--often require a new approach. We champion those changes in the law or rules on the books. We are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization, home-grown in Texas for decades and dedicated to giving every Texan a good start in life.
