While the CASAs in Texas provide assistance to many neglected and abused children. there are several that are run by corrupt individuals in positions as Executive Directors, e.g., one who embezzled funds, one who committed credit card fraud, and one who committed fraud by documenting personal time off as work time. The latter was reported to National and Texas CASAs with no action against the executive director. In addition, local board members failed in their fiduciary responsibility by ignoring the fraudulent documentation. The State CASA Executive Director, in my opinion, swept the incident under the rug. The State CASA couldn't cover up the former violations since law enforcement became involved and both executive directors were prosecuted. It's a sad state of affairs when both National and State CASAs did not take proactive action against such violators. It brings to question how much other public and donor funds have been stolen.
