Mission Statement

Prevent Child Abuse America



The vision of the Hays County Child Protective Board is to promote a safe environment for all children.


The mission of the Board is to link the citizens of Hays County, the Commissioners Court
and Child Protective Services to enhance services to children and families. We address
this mission by:
  • Informing citizens and the Hays County Commissioners Court about the rights and special needs of abused and neglected children
  • Advocating for, preparing, monitoring, and administering the budget allotted to us by the Court
  • Soliciting, monitoring, and administering monies from donations and grants
  • Educating the public and the Court about child and family services in Hays County
  • Interpreting the role of the Child Protective Services staff to citizens and the Court
  • Relating citizen concerns to Child Protective Services staff
  • Influencing legislation and policy related to Child Protective Services through networking and advocacy
