Child Protective Services

Child Protective Services (CPS) located in Fort Worth is a branch of Texas’ social services department responsible for cases of child abuse and neglect. Children found to live in dangerous situations are removed at a moment’s notice and often leave without any belongings. An assigned social worker takes each child “shopping” in a room stocked with basic needs where they receive UFE underwear.

School Homeless Department

Arlington public school district support students enrolled in the federally mandated homeless department. Most of the students are “couch surfing”, many fewer students live in shelters with their families. The department makes sure these children attend their home schools, assuring continuity in their education. The department also provides basic needs, including UFE underwear.

Fort Worth

Pediatric Mobile Unit

Ft. Worth is fortunate to have mobile health units sponsored by The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, providing immunizations, physicals, and other services for families in underserved communities. Medical staff reports that 90% of patients are not wearing underwear, a statistic that led to UFE stocking the units with underwear.
