Local Advisory Groups


The Local Advisory Groups are a partnership between various important child welfare stakeholders in each TXPOP Pilot site region. We have identified Local Advisory Groups for each site and these include regional DFPS leadership, childcare licensing staff, judicial representatives, parent, foster parent and former foster youth representatives. The local advisory group works together to champion TXPOP in their region.

TXPOP engages the system on the statewide and local levels by asking key stakeholders to meaningfully contribute to the work. Members of these groups include DFPS, the courts, child care licensing, parents, foster parents, former foster youth, and CASA among others. These stakeholder groups meet regularly to weigh- in on important aspects of our work and to spread the word throughout their networks.
