Protective Services:Â The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) works with communities to protect children, the elderly, and people with disabilities from abuse, neglect, and exploitation. It also works to protect the health and safety of children in daycare, foster care, and other types of 24-hour care. By going through investigations, services and referrals, regulation, and prevention programs the DFPS can work to make the individual feel safe.
DFPS has five major programs that do this important work:
Adult Protective Services helps protects the elderly and people with disabilities from abuse, neglect, and exploitation through investigations and services. Child Protective Services helps protects children from abuse and neglect through investigations, services, foster care, and adoption. Child Care Licensing helps individuals regulates daycare, foster care, adoption agencies, residential treatment centers, before- and after-school programs, and maternity homes. Statewide Intake takes in reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation from across the state through its Texas Abuse Hotline (1-800-252-5400) and through the website TxAbuseHotline.orgExternal Link which is on 24-hours a day, every day of the year. Prevention and Early Intervention help manage many community-based programs that prevent juvenile delinquency and child abuse and neglect from happening.
Please call theÂ Texas Abuse Hotline if you suspect that a child or adult who is elderly or has disabilities is being abused, neglected, or exploited. No one should suffer from being abused or neglect.
