What’s New for Texas Dads

Healthy Texas Babies is working with the Department of State Health Services to develop a Dads Survey to find out what they need to be supported and strengthened in their role.  When this survey has been completed, details will appear on this site.

Maps for Dads is a roadmap to fatherhood for new dads. The booklet is now being distributed through WIC offices across the state. If your partner participates in WIC, make sure she asks for a copy of Maps for Dads for you or download it here.
