For Child Abuse Prevention Month, we took closer look at what the state is doing to expand prevention initiatives. Texas CASA CEO Vicki Spriggs sits down with Sasha Rasco, Associate Commissioner of Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) at DFPS, to talk about the program’s strategic plan and overall goals.
Rasco took the position of associate commissioner of Prevention and Early Intervention at DFPS in August of 2013. Previously, she worked for 14 years regulating and supporting early childhood education and foster care, including two years as the assistant commissioner for Child Care Licensing at DFPS. She has also developed programs and projects in other child and family service organizations including the Early Childhood Intervention program, the Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services and as a Governor’s Policy Fellow with the Governor of Maryland: Office of Children, Youth, and Families.
Conversations with CASA is an online series from Texas CASA that explores current issues and trends affecting child welfare, children in care and our network.
