Texas Advocacy Project

Project:

Technology Upgrade


Established in 1982 with a vision that no child should ever see one parent harm the other, Texas Advocacy Project’s (the Project) services affect the lives of thousands of Texans each year. The Project offers a range of legal and advocacy services proven to break the cycle of violence. In 2014, they provided legal services in 4,066 cases, serving 9,718 Texans. The Project plans to use the inaugural Impact Austin Catalyst Grant to upgrade its technology platform.  The organization will purchase laptops and cloud-based software allowing their legal staff to remain efficient even when their duties take them away from the office.  This grant will expand The Project’s capacity to handle and close more cases each year and improve the lives of the community it serves.
