Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, emergency response systems have taken great strides to improve child and youth safety during and after natural disasters, creating a complex and structured web of federal, state, and local resources and services prepared to meet the unique needs of children and youth.Texas Network of Youth Services (TNOYS) is a statewide research and advocacy organization working to strengthen services and support for Texas youth and families to help them overcome challenges and achieve healthy development. Through this report, TNOYS aims to better understand what gaps might still exist for young people in emergency response systems and how we can support our network of members to fill those gaps.
