TexProtects' Collaborations and Roundtables

The Child Protection Roundtable

In 2008, TexProtects created the Child Protection Roundtable (CPRT), which brings together statewide research experts, advocates, and program providers from 80 organizations with child protection expertise. Prior to each legislative session, the CPRT researches and shares information about the latest challenges within the child welfare system and uses these ideas as the building blocks for consensus on public policy and budget priorities.

Statewide Home Visiting Consortium

During the fall of 2012, TexProtects organized the Texas Home Visiting Consortium, consisting of representatives from the evidence-based and promising home visiting programs throughout the state of Texas. The mission of the Consortium is to bring together Texas home visiting programs to increase the awareness of home visiting in Texas and to coordinate legislative efforts. The current home visiting program models that are members of the Home Visiting Consortium include:

  • AVANCE
  • Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY)
  • Healthy Families
  • Healthy Start
  • Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)
  • Parents as Teachers (PAT)
  • Positive Parenting Program (Triple P)

TexProtects Public Policy Committee

TexProtects’ Public Policy Committee is the heart of where the organization launches its ideas and formulates its concepts on the broad-scale systemic change needed to improve the Texas child protection and judicial systems as well as ways to bring evidence-based child abuse prevention programs to scale statewide.

TexProtects employs an intricate system of collaboration and research to develop priorities and agenda items, which truly reflect our members’ concerns by incorporating their input. The committee is comprised of key DFW community partners and stakeholders that meet monthly in the interim legislative session to develop proposals that result in legislative priorities.
