Program Support & Strategic Planning

TXICFW is dedicated to providing quality technical assistance to local agencies and organizations who seek to improve the lives of children and families. We believe providing support means helping others reach success. Technical assistance may include leading strategic planning processes, providing consultation in program development stages, and working alongside organizations to build the tools needed to better serve children and families. TXICFW can also assist in developing the infrastructure of a program and ensuring proper integration of all program components.
