Every year, 30,000 children in Texas face the most traumatic chapter of their lives: they suffer abuse or neglect, are removed from their homes, and face an uncertain future in foster care. The Texas foster care system is severely broken. Although there are many wonderful foster parents, a federal judge concluded that "rape, abuse, psychotropic medication, and instability are the "norm" for Texas foster children and that they leave foster care "more damaged than when they entered." The Child Protection Connection protects children by focusing on the professionals who have the greatest power to take action for these children -- the judges and attorneys who act as their lifelines and ensure that they:

• Do not suffer further abuse in foster care
• Are not placed in institutions simply because CPS does not have a place for them
• Are not misdiagnosed with a mental illness because untrained professionals do not understand the trauma they have suffered
• Are not put on multiple psychotropic medications that cause dangerous side effects
• Are not shuffled to multiple schools every year, where progress and needed services are lost
• Do not age out of foster care without a family or deep relationships - quickly facing teen pregnancy, sex trafficking, homelessness, and incarceration.

We connect, equip, and mobilize a network of over 2,800 judges and attorneys, who estimate that they serve over 100,000 abused and neglected Texas children each year.
