Public Policy Team Trains CASA Network on Changes Coming to the Child Welfare System

Texas CASA’s Public Policy team is halfway through their 2020 Regional Trainings! At these daylong trainings, the team updates CASA staff and volunteers on the latest with Community-Based Care (CBC), the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) and legislation affecting CASA and the child welfare system.

The most recent training took place in Athens on Jan. 28, 2019. There were representatives from 11 East Texas programs; and the group had a thoughtful, engaging conversation about all the changes coming to the Texas child welfare system.

You still have a chance to join the discussion! The remaining regional training dates are:

  • Feb. 12 – Central Region (Georgetown)
  • March 24 – Western Region (Lubbock)
  • April 21 – Coastal Region (Rosenberg)

Please reach out to your local CASA program if you would like to participate in one of these trainings. Attendance is being coordinated through the regional representatives.
