2019 Texas Regional Fatherhood Summits

2019 Texas Regional Fatherhood Summits

The annual Texas Fatherhood Summit hosted by Child and Family Research Partnership at The University of Texas at Austin LBJ School of Public Affairs and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Prevention and Early Intervention Division brings together public and private sector professionals who seek research-based best practices and innovations to best support dad, mom, and their children.

For 2019, the Texas Fatherhood Summit is going on the road and will be held in four regions in the state. See below for locations and dates, as well as resources from past summits. [The 2020 event will be in Austin only.]


  • Who should attend the Texas Regional Fatherhood Summit? The Texas Regional Fatherhood Summits are for professionals who engage with and/or impact policies about fathers and families, including local policymakers and agencies, researchers, and representatives from parent and family programs, nonprofits, and other community groups. 
  • When does registration open? Registration for each location is separate with different opening dates starting in March 2019. See below for registration open dates and links.
  • Is there a fee to attend? The Texas Fatherhood Summit is hosted by Texas DFPS Prevention and Early Intervention Division and The University of Texas at Austin Child and Family Research Partnership. There is no fee to attend.
