Texas Lawyers for Children (TLC), The Child Protection Connection™ for Texas
What does TLC do and why is this work important?
Texas Lawyers for Children (TLC), which is the Child Protection
Connection™ for Texas, protects abused and neglected children from being harmed
by the systems meant to keep them safe.
TLC protects the rights of these vulnerable children in the courts, the
community, and the legislature, and connects,
equips, and mobilizes a network of over 3,000 judges, attorneys, and advocates to change children’s lives for the better.
year, 30,000 Texas children face one of the most traumatic chapters of their
lives -- they are removed from home due to abuse or neglect and placed in
foster care. A federal judge recently declared that far too many abused and
neglected children leave foster care
more damaged than when they entered. Too often, children in foster care fall through
cracks in the system and suffer a downward spiral of harm that ultimately ruins
their lives. TLC assists judges and attorneys because every important decision
about an abused child’s life is made in court, and the system for handling
these children’s cases is woefully underfunded. Judges and attorneys have the
unique ability to protect the legal rights of these children and make decisions that keep children from
falling through the cracks.
