Information

We are the leader in policy advances for Texas children.

We are the bridge connecting children’s advocates to one another and to the state government.

How do we do it?

We keep legislators and other state officials informed about what’s happening with Texas kids and what public policy changes they should pursue to support children.

We keep children’s advocates and the public updated on what state officials are doing on kids’ issues and how Texans can get involved.

We keep children’s advocates connected with one another so we can work together to improve children’s lives through better public policies and programs.

Why do we do it?

We see that we all benefit when Texas children thrive in our classrooms, grow into good neighbors, and help build our state’s prosperity for years to come.

We want taxpayers to save money in the long run by helping children get off to a good start and overcome hardships rather than heading towards a dead end in adulthood.

We know science tells us our brain architecture is influenced for a lifetime by childhood interactions, both the positive interactions that support healthy development and the interactions with poverty, hunger, or abuse that produce harmful, toxic stresses in the brain.

Finally, we believe Texas has an obligation to children to keep them safe and help them reach their full potential.

In what policy areas do we do it?

As a nonprofit advocacy organization, we’re focused on what’s best for all Texas kids in these five areas of state policy: child protective services; juvenile justice; mental wellness; health and fitness; and early childhood education and opportunities.

Texans Care for Children joins with community-based partners, corporate leaders, and foundations to ensure that Texas children have the best start to life.
