Parent’s Guide

This is a past project.

The Justice Center, in partnership with the Texas Supreme Court Children’s Commission and practitioners from around the state, co-authored a guide for parents involved with Texas Child Protective Services. In an effort to better inform and engage parents in the CPS process, the guide explains agency and court processes, offers specific guidance on how parents can advocate most effectively for their children and family, and connects parents to statewide resources. The Guide fills a significant gap for parents who may not have access to legal representation in early, critical stages of the CPS process.
