Texas Child Welfare Funders Sponsors TexProtects Legislative Update Tour

Philanthropy Southwest's affinity group, Texas Child Welfare Funders, is sponsoring seven virtual educational events for funders this fall that will cover child welfare legislative updates and the dire shortage of foster beds in Texas right now. TexProtects will cover both topics and more in its Texas Tour, which will address issues regionally. All times are CST. 

  • Dallas / Ft. Worth - October 6, 2021 from 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm 
    • TexProtects and the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center have partnered together to review what happened as it relates to child protection this past legislative session and to hear from various stakeholders in your community about the work that still needs to be done during the interim to ensure Texas families are supported and children are safe. We look forward to your participation as we have breakout discussions on how we can best utilize our resources both before and after families experience a crisis. Some of the topics we plan to cover include: smart strategies to prevent child abuse and neglect; what can be done to address the state’s foster care capacity crisis; and how we can truly transform this system to better serve children and families.

      Who is the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and why we partnered with them: TexProtects is honored to partner with the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, as they work to improve the lives of children who have been abused. They are the only agency of its kind in Dallas County, working collaboratively with public and private agencies to investigate, prosecute, and provide healing services for child abuse cases in Dallas County.
