Frontline for Children | Where Science Meets Policy

TexProtects is pleased to launch our latest monthly feature, Frontline for Children. In it, we will share the newest and most noteworthy child protection research and resources to keep you in the know and inform your work as an advocate for children across Texas.

Our new partnership with Child Trends has expanded our ability to ensure that we are able to keep you connected to innovations and data that will inform policy and program to ensure that every child is safe, nurtured, and resilient. Child Trends is the nation’s leading nonprofit research organization focused exclusively on improving the lives and prospects of children, youth, and their families.

As part of this resource, we not only summarize important research and policy, we also provide you with our TexProtects Takeaway--our view on why it matters and what it means for the well being of children and families in Texas. Thank you for being our partner in putting the science behind policy change that ensures Texas children are safe, nurtured, and resilient.
