Mission Statement

The mission of CHILDREN AT RISK is to improve the quality of life for Greater Houston's children through strategic research, public policy analysis, education, collaboration and advocacy.

Description

We believe that every child has the right to a safe, stable home in which to grow; sufficient shelter; food, and medical care; and adequate opportunities for social, emotional and intellectual growth. Our society's highest priority must be to ensure that these basic needs of children are met. When the public agenda is planned, children's needs must be the first priority. The focus of CHILDREN AT RISK is to make Greater Houston a place where children's needs come first, where families thrive, and where ample resources are available to children and their families.

Using the tools of advocacy, CHILDREN AT RISK works on a broad range of children's issues, including child welfare, human trafficking, education, after school programs, juvenile justice, mental health, and physical health. We focus our efforts where they are needed most: where a significant number of the Houston area's children, particularly those most in need, are affected, and where we can enhance, but not duplicate, the work of others. CHILDREN AT RISK's primary focus on every issue is to change policies, laws, and programs to respond more effectively to the needs of children.
