EMPOWER raises $75K fore the kids

The Texas Family Initiative hosted its third annual charity golf tournament benefiting EMPOWER, a nonprofit child welfare collaborative, on Monday, May 6 at The Nelson Golf and Sports Club, raising just over $75,000 in donations to impact local children in foster care.

EMPOWER is a child welfare collaborative focused on meeting the unique needs of Texas children and families. The collaborative is led by Texas Family Initiative and is supported by local providers in North Texas, including CK Family Services, Jonathan’s Place, The Bair Foundation and Pathways Youth and Family Services.

Through a contract with the State of Texas, EMPOWER is the Community-Based Care (CBC) contractor in Metroplex East, a nine-county area that includes Dallas, Grayson, Fannin, Collin, Hunt, Rockwall, Kaufman, Ellis and Navarro counties.

As the CBC contractor, EMPOWER provides foster care management, kinship and reunification services for all children and families in the Metroplex East region. There are nearly 2,000 foster children in the region.
