Casa of North Texas Funshoot
October 14 All day
CASA of North Texas recruits, trains and gives support to everyday
people who act as volunteer advocates for children who have suffered
abuse and/or neglect and found themselves in foster care.
These volunteers look out for the well being and best interests of these
most vulnerable children, acting as independent and objective fact
finders who speak with the child’s parents, teachers, extended family
members, neighbors and most importantly – the child. They work with the
attorneys, social workers and child protective services workers. CASA
volunteers provide information to the professionals and especially to
the judge, who has the tremendous responsibility of making decisions
that affect the very lives of the children. Information provided by CASA
volunteers helps to ensure decisions made in each case take into account
the child’s best interests.
