In 2016, there were 58,664 confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect, and 18,993 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 is grateful to the following Strategic Alliance Partners:

We know a total reform of the child welfare system requires our organization to be equipped with a highly trained staff that possesses a range of skills and knowledge aimed at improving long-term outcomes for children and families.
We’ve partnered with The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work to promote the well-being of children, families and communities in Texas through quality research and social work best practices.
