Mission Statement

As a county Children's Welfare Board, we are mandated by statute to provide coordinated state and local public welfare services for children and their families and for the coordinated use of federal, state, and local funds for these services.

Our mission is to:

  • Educate our community about child abuse and neglect
  • Create awareness of the need for foster and adoptive homes in our county to recruit and develop a support system for these homes
  • Provide tangible and financial support to meet the needs of children in the care of TDFPS
  • Support and provide a liaison between Atascosa County Child Protective Services workers and the public by increasing our community's awareness of child welfare program policies and needs.
