About Us

Our Mission. To break the cycle of child abuse by empowering children, families and communities.

We are lion-hearted, evidence-minded and faith-inspired in our pursuit to break the cycle of child abuse and equipping others to do the same through our example. 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.
