The Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services (TACFS) would like to invite you to join our organization!

As the state’s leading nonprofit association of agencies that provide critical services to children and families, we are strengthened by a diverse, high quality, and collaborative membership. TACFS is a network of mission-driven organizations that have embraced the call to serve at-risk children, youth, and families, and are working together to improve the care, services, and outcomes in their communities and statewide. 

We work to achieve these goals through education and trainingcollaborationand advocacy. Additionally, through our 501(c)3 nonprofit arm, the Texas Center for Child and Family Studies, we bring a research and data-driven approach to inform all of our work that will provide direct care organizations with the knowledge, skills, and support needed to provide high quality services.

TACFS values our membership and strives every single day to be of service to members. The world of protecting and serving children and families is changing rapidly, and TACFS can help you and your organization stay in touch. We hope you will join the TACFS family and help chart the course forward for working with children and families in Texas! 


The power of TACFS's influence is dependent on its growth in membership. The influence of each professional and organization working with children and families is likewise dependent on speaking as a united front.
