Our children are our most precious resource. Accordingly, it is of utmost importance that we ensure that they are raised in a safe, loving environment and that any government involvement is tailored to be maximally effective while simultaneously minimally disruptive. Join us as TPPF’s Andrew Brown hosts a wide-ranging discussion on topics impacting our state’s child welfare system, including community-based care, system transformation, children without placement, and strategies for strengthening families. Andrew will be joined by Jaime Masters, the Commissioner of the Department of Family and Protective Services, who will bring her perspective on the current state of the Texas foster care system and ongoing reform efforts.

Complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees. You are also welcome to tune in to the event online via livestream.
