About Us

TexProtects is a state-level advocacy organization focused on the prevention of child abuse and neglect. In 2023 there were 58,120 confirmed victims of child abuse and/or neglect. Children thrive in stable, safe and supportive families and the best way to protect Texas children is by supporting the adults surrounding them. Most families want what’s best for their child and placing blame on a parent is not the solution. Texan children deserve better and together, we can prevent this from being their future. 

We prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening Texas families.

TexProtects strengthens Texas families by:

  • Advocating for policies and system transformations that put Texas families first. 
  • Raising awareness of evidence-based and preventative solutions. 
  • Supporting professionals in delivering programs that strengthen families. 
  • Ensuring families and communities are connected to needed support services and resources. 
  • Convening partners and allies in creating a strong prevention ecosystem in our state.
