Here We Stand – Strategic Alliance Partners

Texas is a rapidly growing state with abundant opportunities for its residents. But, at the same time, families must deal with the troubles and tensions that families face even in good times. An estimated 66,000 unduplicated victims of child abuse were confirmed in 2013 and 17,000 children were removed from their homes. Despite all of our good work, we remain haunted by the fact that so many children continue to suffer abuse or neglect.

This problem is bigger than any one entity and will take a group of strategic partners to help us break the cycle of child abuse — changing the way we work and raising the standards in abuse prevention. Upbring will accomplish this through an innovative continuum of services and community partnerships, each tracking progress against markers of safety, life skills, education, health, and vocation, all of which are critical to breaking the cycle of child abuse.

Upbring is excited to announce the following Strategic Alliance Partners:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area
  • Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas
  • Goodwill of Central Texas
  • The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work

This is an exciting time for the agency — we believe that we have a God-given opportunity to shape the agency and shape the way Texas treats children. It’s all of our responsibility to make a difference.

 

Continuum of Care

At Upbring, we recognize that children enter the system at different stages of their lives and due to varying life events. Because the types of abuse and neglect vary among children, we are committed to raising the standards and addressing the entire spectrum.

Upbring will accomplish this through an innovative continuum of services and community partnerships, each tracking progress against markers of safety, life skills, education, health and vocation, all of which are critical to breaking the cycle of child abuse.
