Texas CASA’s mission is to support local CASA volunteer advocacy programs and to advocate for effective public policy for children in the child protection system.
When a child enters the child welfare system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to advocate for the best interest of the child in court and other settings. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA.
