We strive to make children safer and give more of them a secure life.
When a child is abused or neglected, one way we as a state respond is through Child Protective Services (CPS). Texans Care for Children brings together representatives from the Department of Family and Protective Services, which oversees CPS, along with families, nonprofit foster care agencies, and other community-based partners, for Partners in Child Protection Reform, a group Texans Care formed during the CPS reforms of 2005.
The Partners study the issues related to reform, facilitate communication between child welfare organizations and the Department of Family and Protective Services, and advocate as necessary to ensure that child protection reform is in the best interest of the children served.
Meetings are typically held the 1st Wednesday of each month, 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. in Texas Capitol Room, 3N.3. For a summary of past meetings, click here.
Partners in Child Protection Reform thanks our legislative sponsor, Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, for helping to make our meetings possible.
