CASA Volunteers, Staff and Board Members from around the state will gather at the Capitol for CASA Day at the Capitol on Feb. 1, 2011. Join us and make your voice heard on behalf of the more than 20,000 foster children served by CASA Volunteers and nearly 20,000 more abused or neglected children who don’t have a CASA Volunteer to speak up for them in court. Make a difference in abused children’s lives. And your own!
You Can Make a Difference in the Life of a Child!
Every year, thousands of children in Texas are removed from their homes because of evidence of abuse and neglect. They are uprooted from the only family they've known, taken out of schools and away from friends. In short, their worlds are turned upside down. Going through the child welfare system is a scary process and no child should do it alone.
Texas Court Appointed Special Advocates® and its 69 local programs of the Texas CASA network work to ensure that every child who needs an advocate to speak for his or her best interests before the courts has a caring, trained adult to help them with this difficult period of his or her life.
What A CASA Volunteer Does
Texas CASA offers important leadership and support to local programs in a variety of ways: through training and technical assistance, advocacy and grants and resource development.
Make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. Consider becoming a CASA volunteer or volunteering in other ways for your local program. Consider a gift to your local program or to Texas CASA to support the important work of giving a voice to children, who often have no voice.
