Texas CASA was at ACH Child and Family Services in Fort Worth on Sept. 24 getting an update on Community Based Care (CBC) alongside many of our partners. The community was out in force at the event, with Mayor Betsy Price, Sen. Konni Burton, Rep. Stephanie Klick and DFPS Commissioner Hank Whitman in attendance as well. A panel on the progress and future of CBC in Region 3B featured Don Binnicker, CEO of CASA of Tarrant County, and included a robust discussion of how the community has collaborated to improve outcomes for children. The panel also discussed the need for philanthropic and judicial support in communities in order for the model reach its full potential.
On Sept. 20, DFPS held a stakeholder webinar on CBC that provides good basic information and answers a number of questions. For additional information, email the Public Policy team at [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email].
