We celebrated our volunteers' hard work on behalf of children with a lunch at Abel's on the Lake and a presentation about each closed case.

Yesterday a teen boy approached one of our staff and volunteers and said, “Excuse me. I’m sorry to interrupt but I saw your CASA name tag. Do you guys work for CASA? Do you know Kathy? Can you tell her hi for me? She helped me when I was in CPS!” Kathy Carvell, one of our long time CASA volunteers, advocated for this young man 5 years ago while he was in Child Protective Services. CASA volunteers are someone kids can count on during tough times and Kathy clearly left a great impression on this young man!

You can make sure kids who’ve been through abuse or neglect have a dedicated CASA volunteer like Kathy there to help. Schedule an Amplify Austin donation now, or give starting tonight at 6 pm - http://bit.ly/AmplifyCASA14

CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system.
Introduction

CASA of Travis County believes every child who's been abused or neglected deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school and in our community. To accomplish this, CASA educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child's needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. When the state steps in to protect a child's safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations and help the judge decide what's best for the child.

For children who've been abused or neglected, CASA means having a home instead of feeling lost, and being a priority instead of feeling invisible. For volunteers, CASA is a life-changing experience that makes our community a better place.
