TexProtects: The Texas Association for the Protection of Children

Legislative Resource Center

Each legislative session, TexProtects works with the Public Policy Committee, Child Protection Roundtable and the Texas Home Visitation Consortium, as well as other advocates, to create broad-scale, systematic change via major public policy innovations of child protection systems and to leverage private funds with public funds to bring high-impact prevention solutions to scale. Over the past decade, TexProtects has assisted and/or led the passage of over 41 bills that have improved the Child Protective Services system and advocated for and secured $100 million for family support home visitation programs, which currently service over 21,000 families across Texas.
