help us keep kids on the path to success

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’s up to us to be the change we want to see in the world!

With all the uncertainties and issues facing us…one thing is clear. Children are our future and depend on us now to help pave the way for a future where they can reach their full potential.

During this year’s 88th Texas Legislative Session, CHILDREN AT RISK showed up strong and was able to accomplish several positive steps for children, including:

  • Securing legislation to advance quality early childhood education, fight human trafficking, and increase postpartum Medicaid coverage.
  • Helping pass the CROWN Act to prohibit discrimination based on hair texture of protective hairstyles associated with race in both school districts and institutions of higher education.
  • Registering support for 79 bills and providing expert testimony on legislation 29 times.
  • Organizing four Advocacy Rally days to promote legislation on early childhood education, anti-human trafficking, racial equity, and basic needs.

But as you know, significant issues remain and many of our children continue to face an uphill battle on the path to success. We must continue to speak out for all our children and demand more from our leaders and policymakers as we move into 2024! We need your support so that we can continue to improve the lives of all Texas children, but especially those who would otherwise be left behind.
