Texas State Dept. of Human Resources, Austin.
The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (Public Law 93-247 as amended) provides financial assistance for, among other purposes, demonstration programs aimed at prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. To encourage innovative approaches to identifying, treating, and preventing child abuse at the community level, the Texas Department of Human Resources invites each of its 12 administrative regions to participate in a competitive process for receiving grants. Proposals with demonstrated or promised community support and resources receive consideration for receipt of grant funds. The brief annual reports collected in this document describe the activities of seven grant recipients; specifically provided for each are an overview of the project, statements of objectives, summaries of progress made in attaining objectives, and other related information. Projects reporting are (1) the Special Investigative Services Project, (2) the Impact of Protective Services Project, (3) the Project to Study Fair-Hearings Practices in Child Protective Services, (4) the Group Services for Child Protective Clients Project, (5) the Foster Child Advocate Services Project (a guardian ad litem program), (6) the Coordinated Approach to Investigations and Information-Sharing Project, and (7) the Waco Center for Youth Liaison Project.
