Our History

Mother and Child

Since its inception in 2005 and launch in February 2008 Travis County FDTC: PIR has served more than 300 families. The program has a mission to provide a spectrum of court and community-based supports for parents involved in the child welfare system that promotes recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and encourages healthy lifestyle choices. The Court is designed as an enhancement to the Child Protective Services (CPS) Court docket. Through the support of the FDTC: PIR program, parent participants become sober, responsible caregivers so they can ensure the safety and wellbeing of their children. This focus of support and accountability for the parents and their children is to promote the goal of stopping the cycle of abuse/ neglect and addiction for the next generation.
