About Texas Child Welfare Funders

Private funders are an important voice in the child welfare system, and the Texas Child Welfare Funders provides a statewide forum for funders to collectively understand the landscape of child welfare and identify ways to partner and invest with one another to benefit children, youth and families.

Over the past several years, the child welfare system in Texas has experienced significant change, most notably a push toward a Community-Based Care model of service delivery. The guiding motivation behind this reform is for better outcomes for children and youth who go through the foster care system. An even more aspirational goal is preventing them from experiencing substitute care altogether.
