convening for change

Every dollar donated helps us improve the lives of Texas children. CHILDREN AT RISK is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN: 76-0360533). Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. 

It is with immense pride and joy that we announce a significant milestone: the 35th Anniversary of CHILDREN AT RISK.

For over three decades, our organization has been at the forefront of advocating for the well-being and rights of vulnerable children, tirelessly working to create a Texas where every child has an opportunity to succeed. 

Our efforts are deliberate, measurable, and focus on achieving substantial impact by addressing and advocating for systemic improvements based on data and research. As we reflect on our journey, we are reminded of the invaluable dedication and investment in our work from supporters like yourself, who have been instrumental in making our mission a reality. This anniversary is not just a celebration of our achievements but a testament to the collective effort and commitment of our community.

Let’s continue to stand together on behalf of every child in Texas, as we embark on yet another year of enacting meaningful change. For Children!
