Travis County Collaborative for Children
Partner Application

The Travis County Collaborative for Children (TCCC) is a network of partner organizations that have joined forces to significantly improve the outcomes of children in the foster care system in Central Texas.  Specifically, the TCCC has three key goals:
  • There is a healing, local family within Central Texas for every child in need of a foster placement. To achieve this, we need to recruit at least 200 new foster families.
  • Every child has 2 or fewer placements while in foster care
  • Every foster child will have a positive, permanent placement in 2 years or less
The ability of the TCCC to achieve these goals is dependent on partner organizations agreeing to support and participate in the following activities:
  • Adopt and implement policies and practices that comply with the TCCC Definition of a Trauma-Informed Organization, System and Program.
  • Educate and inform staff, volunteers and families that care for and/or interact with foster children on TBRI and trauma-informed practices
  • Support efforts by TCCC leadership and other partner organizations to build awareness, recruit, and train families in the community.
  • Gather and share data and success stories with TCCC leadership and other partner organizations to inform decision-making.
  • Participate in cross-organization and cross-sector gatherings to share information and develop coordinated action steps for improving services and the foster care system.
