Kids Count is a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the U.S. funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. CPPP is the home of the Texas Kids Count Project.
When Texas children are safe, healthy, and educated, Texas thrives. Ensuring that kids do well today ensures that we all do well tomorrow. From 2000 to 2010, Texas accounted for half of the U.S. child population growth, which means when Texas kids do better, the U.S. does better.
Texas kids do the talking in our latest video, "Invest In Me."
