Texas CASA Community-Based Care Guide Now Available, Webinar Today!

Texas CASA is proud to release our Guide to Community-Based Care in Texas.

This guide provides basic information about the move to the new model of service delivery based on regional nonprofit contractors who will assume many of the powers and duties performed by the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and Child Protective Services (CPS). CBC is an evolving system and model in Texas, and Texas CASA will update the guide as appropriate.

The guide is primarily intended for CASA programs, staff and volunteers, but may provide useful information to other child protection system participants. Feel free to download or print as many copies as you would like.

Texas CASA is offering a webinar on CBC at 12 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2019. The webinar will be posted online for later viewing.


As a reminder, DFPS also released its Implementation Plan for CBC recently. If you have questions about CBC or the guide, contact the Public Policy team at [email]publicpolicy@texascasa.org[/email].
