Texas CASA has partnered with Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) to share their work and expertise in advocacy for infants and toddlers. CAFB’s Infant and Toddler program is a whole-program approach, and they have been working with us at Texas CASA to further develop resources and materials to support the entire CASA network in this area.
Throughout 2023, CAFB will be hosting a five part webinar series for CASA staff on various elements of their Infant and Toddler program, and more resources from Texas CASA will also be shared. To view the webinars live, please register to attend. Webinars are available online after each event.
