Child Abuse Victims Need a CASA

CASA volunteers are community members advocating for the best interest of children and families involved in the foster care system. CASA volunteers help ensure a child's voice is heard, and helps identify supportive people in the child's life.

Ten-year-old Jason will tell you CASA volunteers are important because in his four years in foster care, his CASA never gave up on him, and never gave up working to find permanent resolution in his case. The foster care system is overwhelmed, and having a CASA meant his desires and best interests were amplified. Jason will tell you that his CASA volunteer fought for he and his siblings to have regular visits even when they were placed hours apart, and his CASA helped find permanent 'forever families' for he and his siblings that would help maintain family connections.

April is NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE AWARENESS and PREVENTION month! Please support CASA for Hunt County as we advocate, by order of the court, for 100% of the Hunt County children who are removed from their abusive and/or neglectful homes and placed in to the care and custody of the state -- otherwise known as foster care.
