The Best Place for Kids!™ effort originated in Fort Worth, Texas due to the ongoing efforts on the ground and the sheer number and need that of families in our area. In 2020, the Best Place for Kids!™ effort expanded to offer more tangible resources to families in the broader Tarrant County area. For a recap on our effort to date, click here.
For the sake of sustaining long-term livability and competitiveness as a region, our community comprised of elected leaders, parents, community partners, philanthropy and business leaders, is committed to supporting families. Because, a city that is the Best Place for Kids!™ is also the Best Place for Working Parents™.
We exist to ensure every child has access to 1) quality education experiences starting at birth, 2) families are connected with key local resources, and 3) businesses are supported with strategies that benefit working parents AND their bottom line.
