Advocating for families through support for healthy pregnancies and moms, children’s access to health coverage, and Early Childhood Intervention services for toddlers with disabilities.

We envision a Texas in which:

Moms from every racial and ethnic background receive the support they need before, during, and after their pregnancies to ensure they are healthy and their babies are healthy.

Children have the health coverage they need to stay healthy, learn in school, and grow up strong.

Infants and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays have access to the Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) services they need to reach their potential.


The Legislature needs to fully fund Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) for infants and toddlers with Down syndrome, autism, speech delays, and other disabilities and developmental delays.

Our work on Healthy Families is led by Diana Forester, our Health Policy Director, and Alec Mendoza, our Senior Policy Associate for Health. For more information, please contact them at and
