Two Houston-area children’s advocacy groups have recently merged, and they’re now bringing their programs for children and families together under one roof. Today they’re unveiling a Ten Year Strategic Plan to guide them in that work.

The two organizations are Initiatives for Children and the Greater Houston Collaborative For Children — groups with similar goals but a different focus. Collaborative President Carol Shattuck says their merger is a perfect marriage.

Shattuck says the new organization will bring their different focuses together to improve education and quality of life for young Houston children, and these efforts begin with public awareness.

Shattuck says much of the time, it’s just a matter of getting useful information out to parents who need it.

The Collaborative For Children is now releasing a detailed ten year plan for providing its services.
