We want to thank the Toy Industry Foundation, The Lola Wright Foundation and the Austin Bar Foundation for their support in the creation of our new curriculum! Learn more about it and see if now might be the right time for you to become a CASA volunteer. Our next training cycle starts July 23rd.
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.
