What We Do
We use research and data to understand the needs of Texas children and their families. This research drives our advocacy agenda and helps us develop evidence-based policy recommendations.
Research and data alone are not enough to drive change for children. We use our research to develop policy recommendations that have the most impact and speak up to inform policymakers.
We work better together. We rely on partners across the state to support our research and data collection, provide regional insights, and amplify our advocacy efforts through collective action.
