Resources from 2017 Texas Fatherhood Summit
On March 24, Dr. Cynthia Osborne and the UT Austin Child and Family Research Partnership (CFRP) brought together researchers, policy makers and practitioners for the 2nd annual Texas Fatherhood Summit. The goal of the Summit was to work together to develop a comprehensive approach to supporting Texas fathers and their families. Texas DFPS’ Prevention and Early Intervention Division (PEI) was the partner agency for this event.
