Texas CASA Standards outline the rules and requirements for the operation and advocacy of local CASA programs. The FY2021 Texas CASA Standards for Local CASA/GAL Programs was approved by Texas CASA’s Board of Directors in June 2021.
These 11 updated Standards reflect National CASA/GAL’s focus on becoming a highly effective organization at the national level and desire to see highly effective organizations on the state and local levels. They also represent as our collective unwavering commitment to providing quality volunteer advocacy for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Texas CASA worked with Regional Representatives and select local programs across the state to incorporate the new National CASA Standards as well as legal requirements of CASA programs and Texas-specific Standards.
