Children at Risk is a non-partisan research and advocacy organization dedicated to addressing the root causes of poor public policies affecting children. The organization began in the fall of 1989 when a group of child advocates met to discuss the lack of data on the status of children and the absence of strong public policy support for Houston’s children. Children at Risk has grown to become a statewide organization impacting all children in Texas, speaking out and driving change for Texas’ most vulnerable youth for over 30 years.
