Texas CASA is pleased to announce that we are adding 11 new Collaborative Family Engagement (CFE) sites in Fiscal Year 2019! This means that in year four, we will be working with 31 CASA programs and their local CPS to implement CFE, build better connections and create brighter futures for children and youth in the child welfare system.
Studies have found that one of the strongest indicators for child well-being is the number of committed adults in a child’s life. CFE is an innovative Family Finding partnership between CASA and CPS that is built around the fact that children have many blood relatives and other important connections that can be identified and located, and engaged with.
Below are the newly added CFE programs for FY 2019:
- Bluebonnet CASA
- CASA of South Texas
- CASA of the Permian Basin Area, Inc.
- CASA of the Pines
- CASA of Wise and Jack Counties
- Child Advocates CASA of Red River
- Child Advocates, Inc.
- Children’s Advocacy Center of Tom Green County, Inc.
- Dallas CASA
- Gulf Coast CASA
- Lone Star CASA
Please stay tuned for more information on Texas CASA’s plans for CFE year 4, as this innovative approach continues to spread across the state!
