Collaborative for Youth in Care

The Collaborative for Youth in Care (CLYC) is made up of eight organizations with expertise in teen pregnancy prevention and child welfare. CLYC was formed after a report was published by Texans Care for Children in 2019 that highlighted the increased risk of early pregnancy faced by youth in foster care and the need for additional supports for pregnant and parenting youth.

More than 1,800 youth are currently in conservatorship and extended foster care in the greater Houston area- more than any other region in the state. This translates to an incredible opportunity for impact.  Click here to learn more about CLYC. 

On December 11, 2020, CLYC formally released our Implementation Plan. Recordings of our release webinar are available in English and Spanish.  You can also view our Implementation Plan here.

CLYC policy priorities for the 87th Legislative Session are available here.
