The Foundation is working to alleviate conditions that are harmful to families or place children at risk of maltreatment by supporting organizations that provide prevention services, substitute care, and permanency options for children and youth.
The Foundation supports organizations that prevent child maltreatment. Through support for prevention services, the Foundation encourages healthy family functioning and resiliency of youth who have faced adverse experiences.
The Foundation seeks organizations that support children in substitute care and ensure that all children achieve permanency in home that is safe and healthy. For youth who have been maltreated and removed from their home, the Foundation supports organizations that provide those youth with effective support services and safe, therapeutic placements – especially those that can meet the needs of youth with high needs. The Foundation also supports organizations that fight to hold perpetrators of child abuse and neglect accountable.
The Foundation’s focus in child welfare is primarily:
Funding for the clinical services program, which provides counseling services to victims of child abuse or neglect and their non-offending family members.
Funding to support The Rees-Jones Center for Foster Care Excellence, which addresses the unique needs of children in foster care in North Texas, including physical, mental, and behavioral conditions.
Funding to support its Counseling and Family Advocacy Program, which provides counseling services to child victims of abuse and their non-offending family members.
Funding to support SafePlay, its wrap-around program that provides children with transitional housing, counseling, legal services, and case management.
