As a leader in adoption, the Gladney Center for Adoption has taken an active role advocating for pro – child laws and regulations at the state and national levels. We know Gladney is stronger when we join with families and other organizations. Gladney launched this advocacy page as a resource, to keep families and other child advocates informed about what we are seeing, and to provide a communication avenue for individuals to notify Gladney about other issues you are aware of or to let us know your thoughts about the issues we are following. Please subscribe to our email updates to receive timely information, blogs about important topics, links to pending legislation, and calls to action when significant issues arise. We are looking forward to connecting with you.

Sincerely,

Heidi Bruegel Cox, JD
Gladney General Counsel & Vice President

Gladney has been placing children from foster care for many years. In October 2018, the Gladney Center Board of Directors voted to further advance Gladney’s focus and mission by creating a task force to grow and improve adoptions from foster care. The purpose of the task force is “to create a sustainable and replicable model that places every adoptable child waiting in Texas foster care.” The members of the task force include Gladney board members, Gladney parents who adopted children from foster care, and Gladney staff, with input from outside experts in relevant fields. Gladney board member Roger Metz serves as the chair of the task force. This group begins its exciting and strategic work this month.
