Advocacy

Unite to Advocate for Children and Families

Advocating for children is at the heart of  TACFS's mission. TACFS members strengthen and expand their influence with policy makers by joining with other agencies to:

  • Educate elected officials and state agency leaders about the needs of the children in care and the effectiveness of private sector services
  • Promote adequate funding for children and family services
  • Ensure that regulations and rules are practical and reasonable as well as effective

The effectiveness of TACFS advocacy efforts depends on members staying informed and actively participating in the policy and legislative process and by communicating regularly with their own elected officials.

TACFS contributes to building a stronger voice for children and families through collaboration with other child advocacy organizations at both the state and national levels. Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services is a member of the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA), the Alliance for Families and Communities (National Alliance), and the National Organization of State Associations for Children (NOSAC).
