It’s rarely one thing that prevents child abuse. In order to create safe, stable homes which produce happy and healthy adults, you might need financial help, access to therapy or even housing. We call it treating 360 degrees of need, and because of it, we’re making progress toward a community in which everyone can thrive.

Report Child Abuse

Texas has both civil and criminal laws to protect children from abuse and neglect. If you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected, please report it to The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). Call 1.800.252.5400.

If you don’t help prevent child abuse, who will?
