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. 

  • San Antonio - October 27, 2021 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am
    • TexProtects and the Blue Ribbon Task Force 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 hear from an expert panel and open up for audience discussion on how we can best utilize our resources 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; the continued roll-out of Community-Based Care in the region; and how we can truly transform the system.

      Who is the Blue Ribbon Task Force and why we partnered with them: TexProtects is honored to partner with the Blue Ribbon Task Force. Led by Senator José Menéndez and tri-chairs Peggy Eighmy, Judge John Specia, and Judge Peter Sakai, the Blue Ribbon Task Force is a leader in child abuse prevention efforts in Bexar County. The Blue Ribbon Task Force utilizes collaborative efforts across Bexar County to develop and advance community-based solutions to prevent child abuse and neglect.
