ALIGNED FOR IMPACT

 

The types of community problems we’re facing cannot be solved by a single person, organization or idea. Collective, multi-year, cross-sector projects best enable us to tackle ingrained challenges.

ADDRESSING THE FOSTER CARE CRISIS

 

Our foster care system is broken. Children who are removed from an abusive or neglectful family in Travis County spend an average of three years in foster care and change homes an average of three times before being adopted. From our Foster Family Gap Analysis, we know that there aren’t enough local families to care for these children: 30% are placed far away from Central Texas.

 

The TCCC is transforming the way children are cared for after they have been removed from their homes. By aligning and coordinating organizations and individuals that surround a child and their family, TCCC is able to build an ecosystem that stops trauma and promotes healing. Collaborative partners have agreed to work collectively towards three major goals:

10003
 

Children will be in foster care no longer
than two years

 
10006
 

Children will experience no more than two placements in foster care.

 
10004
 

200 new foster families recruited to be an available healing placement for every child
