We are excited to welcome Benita Pekkattil to the Texas CASA team as our new Grants Management Specialist I!
Benita will be responsible for the administration of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Advocate/Volunteer Travel, VOCA Background Check, Title IV-E, and License Plate grants, as well as other grant projects as assigned.
Benita is originally from Houston and moved to Austin approximately two years ago. Her first encounter with Texas CASA was during an event at a local business in early 2019. It was after that event that she got to experience the people and the culture, and she was immediately drawn to the company and connected with the purpose. Benita has worked for other organizations that have supported children and feels that it’s only fitting that she make this move to Texas CASA.
Join us in welcoming Benita!
