TxDFPS Commissioner Jaime Masters and Program Director Leshia Fisher,By: Montgomery County Gazette collage. According to a report published in May 2022 by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, in the fiscal year 2021, 1,695 unique children and youth went missing while in the care of TxDFPS, with 80% of the missing youth between the ages of 14 and 17. “Missing” just means the child left the facility where they lived and was unaccounted for. Sometimes the child was located and returned to TxDFPS care, only to leave again during the year. In the fiscal year 2021, TxDFPS had a total of 3,528 times a child was “missing.”

Why are DFPS workers still struggling with taking corrective action to work towards keeping children safe, and preventing young children that have been victimized from being revictimized, especially while the child is in their care?
Opinion: Texas DFPS culture of falsifying investigation reports and putting children in harm's way
Opinion: State workers apparently can't get their act together despite a decade-long lawsuit against the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. It appears that things are far worse than anyone could imagine. While the foster care situation in Texas continues to deteriorate, and children are still sleeping in hotels, the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) neglectful patterns reach farther than children that are placed in foster care.
