We are a national organization with the capacity to work for children at federal, state and community levels across the country. We have our headquarters in Washington, D.C., and offices in California, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, South Carolina and Texas. Through these offices, we expand our work into North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Jersey. CDF Haley Farm in Clinton, Tenn., is our home for spiritual renewal, character and leadership development, intergenerational mentoring, and interracial and interfaith dialog about children's issues.

Since 1999, Children’s Defense Fund-Texas has been a leading voice for children who cannot vote, lobby or speak for themselves. We are committed to raising awareness about the challenges facing Texas children, connecting children and families to resources that help to meet their needs, and working with partners statewide to coordinate broad support for legislative action on behalf of children and families.
