Each day, a child in Austin is in desperate need of protection. A Child Protective Services caseworker may need to remove a child from her home to ensure her safety. This child has nothing; she clings to the caseworker for comfort while the caseworker takes comfort that she can give the child more than just a hug.
Partnerships for Children provides the caseworker a few things for the child – pajamas, a toothbrush, clothing, and a teddy bear to hold on to. For this child, these things will make a scary situation a little easier. For the caseworker, they ease the stress of a difficult task.
