What We Do
Supporting Local CASA Programs
Texas CASA creates and oversees a statewide marketing campaign to increase public awareness, recruit volunteers and reinforce local marketing efforts with billboards, radio, television and social media advertisements.
Texas CASA brings the CASA network and the child welfare community together to educate and inform for a better understanding of the system and the existing needs of children and families involved in foster care.
Texas CASA provides access to
information, training and technical assistance so that local CASA programs may continue to grow their efforts to ensure children and youth are safe and supported.
Texas CASA is a trusted partner that identifies, disperses, administers and manages federal, state and private funds. We help to ensure the local CASA programs effectively utilize the funding to achieve their missions.
Texas CASA provides innovative trainings, mentorship and resources that build strong local CASA program board members, executive directors and staff so that they may better serve children and families.
LEADERSHIP IN PUBLIC POLICY
Texas CASA works to make sure that the voices of children in the child welfare system are heard not only in the courts but also at the Texas Capitol. Texas CASA engages in legislative advocacy efforts to better enable CASA volunteers to serve these children through the promotion of public policies.
“Texas’ children will always need a strong advocate by their side, and Texas will continue to look to CASA to help lead that effort. Nothing is more important to our great state than the future of our children.”
– Governor Greg Abbott
