How Can I Get Involved?

If you’re interested in getting involved with one of our groups, please email TXPOP Engagement Lead Megan Ransom at mransom@tacfs.org.


TXPOP engages the system on the statewide and local levels by asking key stakeholders to meaningfully contribute to the work. Our stakeholder groups include individuals representing the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), CASA, the courts, child care licensing, parents, foster caregivers, and youth formerly in foster care, among others. Stakeholder groups meet regularly to provide feedback and spread the word about our work throughout their networks.
