DFPS announced the selection of a Single Source Continuum Contractor (SSCC) to be the Community Based Care provider in Region 2, a 30-county area in North and North-central Texas that includes Wichita Falls and Abilene.
The selected SSCC is 2INgage, which is a new partnership between Texas Family Initiative and New Horizons. New Horizons has been a CPA and care provider in Region 2 and elsewhere in Texas for many years. SSCCs are private, nonprofit entities that take on a range of child protection responsibilities previously performed by the state in a defined geographic region known as a catchment area.
