TexProtects' Collaborations and Roundtables

The Child Protection Roundtable

In 2008, TexProtects created the Child Protection Roundtable (CPRT), which brings together statewide research experts, advocates, and program providers from 80 organizations with child protection expertise. Prior to each legislative session, the CPRT researches and shares information about the latest challenges within the child welfare system and uses these ideas as the building blocks for consensus on public policy and budget priorities.
