Public Policy and Advocacy

Public Policy and Advocacy

For over 45 years the Texas Foster Care Association has advocated for foster, adoptive, and kinship families.  We pride ourselves on being the state-wide voice for foster care.

Nearly 30 years ago, the state of Texas began outsourcing foster care to the private sector, and many of those families were not included in local foster parent associations, creating more need for the TFCA to provide support resources. Due to other changes in the system, there was also an increased need for advocacy efforts. For over four decades, the TFCA has focused on supports and services needed by the children in foster care and the resource families who so diligently serve them.

If you would like to become involved in advocacy efforts in partnership with the Texas Foster Care Association,  please contact the chair of the Public Policy and Advocacy Committee at publicpolicy@tffa.org.
