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.

Passed during the 85th Legislative Session, Senate Bill 78 by Senator Jane Nelson gives CASA programs access to Texas’ state agency surplus computers to distribute to children and youth served by CASA. Texas CASA has been hard at work to implement this new program, Computers for CASA, and is excited to announce that local CASA programs can now officially begin requesting computers for their children and youth!
