What we aim to solve

Teen and unplanned pregnancies can hurt people's chances of success and lessen a community's overall economic wellbeing. Lack of access to reproductive health care and accurate sex ed compound this problem.

Since 2006, Healthy Futures of Texas has worked to reduce unplanned and teen pregnancies through science-based education and advocacy efforts that empower young people, women, and families to make the best decisions for their futures. We work with parents, young people and students to provide sex education, and we advocate at the state and local levels to improve reproductive healthcare access.

Every year, we serve 12,000 young people through our programs and millions more through our advocacy efforts. At the state level, our work has maintained or increased millions in funding for preventative healthcare for women, young people and families.

Community level: Working with multiple partners and through multiple programs, we ensure that young people have access to the information and resources they need to make informed decisions about their bodies and sexual health. (Programs: Youth Education, Parent Education, BAE-B-SAFE, Big Decisions) State level: We manage a coalition of professional, healthcare and faith-based organizations that advocates for state funding and policies to ensure Texas women have access to preventative healthcare. We train, inform, and provide Texas schools with science-based sexual health education.​ (Youth Advocacy Council, Texas Women's Healthcare Coalition) Federal level: In 2018, the federal government tried to end a Department of Human Services program that was funding $213 million in teen pregnancy prevention efforts. We filed a class-action lawsuit and won, securing a major victory for our community and the 61 agencies implementing programs across the country​.

We measure progress in terms of participation and completion of programs for students and parents. We also measure success based on legislative success. We break these two larger goals into smaller metrics, including fidelity to curricula and time spent with legislators.

Since 2006, we have been critical in reducing the teen pregnancy rate in Texas by more than 60%. We also protect and advocate for women's health funding worth millions of dollars at the state level.
