SPEAKING OUT & DRIVING CHANGE FOR CHILDREN

About Children at Risk

CHILDREN AT RISK serves as a catalyst for change to improve the quality of life for children through strategic research, public policy analysis, education, collaboration, and advocacy.

Who We ARE

CHILDREN AT RISK is a non-partisan research and advocacy organization dedicated to addressing the root causes of poor public policies affecting children. The organization began in the fall of 1989 when a group of child advocates met to discuss the lack of data on the status of children and the absence of strong public policy support for Houston’s children. CHILDREN AT RISK has grown to become a statewide organization impacting all children in Texas, speaking out and driving change for Texas’ most vulnerable youth for over 30 years.

WHat WE DO

Using the tools of research and  advocacy, CHILDREN AT RISK works on a broad range of children’s issues, including education, parenting and family well being, health and nutrition, immigration, and the fight to end human trafficking. We focus our efforts where they are needed most: where a significant number of Texas’ children are affected, and where we can enhance, but not duplicate, the work of others.
