#var:page_name# cover

This March, the Texas Institute for Child and Family Wellbeing and Upbring released the pilot report from the Texas Youth Permanency Study (TYPS). The study asks whether the child welfare system’s focus on legal permanency (adoption, reunification, kinship care) for children in foster care is sufficient— and offers an alternative model to give youth everything they need to succeed in adulthood.

Be the first in your community to hear directly from the research team about these groundbreaking findings.
