EVERY CHILD HAS A CHANCE - IT'S YOUⓇ
When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to advocate for the child. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate®, or CASA. CASA volunteers are screened, highly trained, and appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child’s best interests in the child welfare system.
Voices for Children, the CASA program serving the Brazos Valley, empowers community volunteers to advocate for children and families involved in the child welfare system. CASA advocates are of, and for, the communities we serve.
From the original class of eight advocates in 2001, we have grown to a volunteer network of over 200 community members working to strengthen and build support networks around the families we serve.
A CASA Volunteer is a consistent presence in a child's life during their time in foster care.
