  •   2016 All Healthy Children Campaign

    CDF-Texas’ All Healthy Children Campaign is an award-winning school-based child health outreach model that works to identify uninsured children and connects eligible, uninsured children to affordable healthcare. When children’s basic health needs are met, communities do better. We all do better. The challenges facing Texas children are urgent and impact all of us. However, together, there is no problem caring adults cannot solve. Every step we take to improve the lives of children, improves the lives of all of us.

  •   2009 Dismantling the Cradle to Prison Pipeline

    Today, in Houston, Texas, many factors channel large segments of our population away from productive lives and toward prison. They include illiteracy, poverty, poor health care, domestic violence, mental health issues, teen pregnancy, unemployment, lack of positive role models, truancy and more. The Children’s Defense Fund calls this the Cradle to Prison Pipeline® crisis. The more risk factors young people have, the greater the likelihood they will enter the Pipeline. Once in it, kids are caught in a downward spiral that makes it almost impossible to get out. This report tells the stories of people trying to help them.

  •   2014 American Leadership Forum Report Update

    This document provides a 2014 update and research supplement to the American Leadership Forum’s original 2009 report which addressed the racial disparities, risk factors
    and high costs of the Prison Pipeline in Texas and presented promising local programs investing in prevention, early intervention, and solutions. Representatives from the original 13 organizations profiled were interviewed and asked to describe program changes, growth, and accomplishments since 2009. Many initiatives originally highlighted have seen substantial expansion in both programming and number of children impacted.
