Harris County Family Intervention-Infant Toddler Court

Harris County Family Intervention-Infant Toddler Court The FI-ITC is a Family Dependency Court and hears cases involving CPS and allegations of child abuse or neglect cases where substance abuse by the caregiver(s) is a primary factor in removal of the child(ren) from the caregivers’ custody.

The FIC was founded in 2004, with the ITC component added in 2009. The Court uses a phased approach to recovery for not only the parent, but the family. The Court uses an array of services for children and adults focused on healing of trauma and improving recovery and well-being of the children and their families. The FI-ITC is unique in its focus on the parent-child relationship and the provision of services to “heal” that relationship.

Texans Care For Children

Working in, as a part of, the child welfare system can be painfully frustrating at times. Luckily, we have the ability to do things differently within our program. There are so many barriers to reunification, recovery, health, financial stability, employment, sobriety, all within a 12 month, sometimes 18 month timeframe, it’s overwhelming. When parents get to see their infant/toddler/kids for two hours, every two weeks....that’s not the best we can do!! Protecting children also involves protecting their mental health/attachment/bonding opportunities. I look forward to reading the policy brief.

We will always continue looking at ways to be better at what we do!!

Texas has made progress on CPS & foster care issues, but there's a lot more work to do! Check out our policy brief on key CPS issues of the session.

It's helpful background for the House Appropriations Subcommittee hearings on CPS scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.

As we enter a new year, let’s all take some life lessons from this little girl. Even if in comparison to others she isn’t as far along, she’s confident in herself. Even if you aren’t as far along in your recovery as you would like to be, keep moving forward, no matter what. You will face setbacks, you will face triggers, but, no matter what, never let life take your swagger!! Just keep moving forward!

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $30 million to public housing authorities nationwide, which will work closely with local public welfare agencies to identify youth at risk of homelessness and families whose lack of adequate housing is the primary reason their children are in foster care.

This funding will make 3,000 vouchers available for families who are unable to secure affordable housing for their children or dependents.

Harris County was awarded 85 housing vouchers!! Thanks to all of the work done by a group of amazing agencies, our families/kids will be one of many beneficiaries.
