Learn More About Education Reach for Texans Education Reach for Texans seeks to eliminate barriers to success and build support programs for alumni of care attending public colleges and universities in the state of Texas. We are one of a growing group of organizations across the nation seeking to improve the success of former foster youth in postsecondary education. Historically, our primary means for achieving this goal has been to hold state-wide convenings of postsecondary and child welfare professionals to facilitate the sharing of ideas and spurring the implementation of campus-based support programs. While the conferences remain our core focus, we continue to expand our communication efforts in sharing both resources and information. Please continue to read the information below about the hotels, airport, parking, programs, and FAQs. You can also refer to our website for additional details.  FAQs Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
