It ain't just a Texas thang either!
The mission of the US Dept of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, has always been some notion of protecting our nation’s children from abuse and neglect. The federal state, as parens patriae, has gradually come to embrace, through evolution of our moral code and attendant law concerning the rights of children, its duty to assure these children’s rights. Each of these United States has an agency anointed to fulfill this mission, commonly known as Child Protective Services (CPS).
