Our 2022 Conference Theme is “Anchored in Purpose”

The past two years have been marked by many waves of uncertainty and instability. Even amid these storms, prevention and early intervention professionals across Texas have proven to be innovative and supportive and have stayed the course. PEI believes this resolve and focus comes from a firm connection to our vision of creating a Texas where all children thrive in their families and communities. How do we as professionals stay anchored to our vision, mission, and goals? What tools do we need to keep our connections strong? Where have we found resources that give us renewed purpose? Join us in the conversation about staying "Anchored in Purpose" at the 2022 Partners in Prevention Conference.
