About Us is a free resource for parents provided by the Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Articles on this website are authored by experts in a variety of fields as well as PEI staff. Staff articles are based on authoritative sources and the latest research available.

PEI manages programs across Texas that offer free, voluntary services to families. We don't provide services directly. Instead, we contract with local nonprofits, governments, and schools. We provide funding and resources that support local programs and the families they help.
