Review for Casa Of Central Texas, Inc., New Braunfels, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a CASA volunteer in Missouri for over six years and have recently joined as a volunteer advocate for CASA of Central Texas. It is truly amazing what CASA does on behalf of abused and neglected children all across the US. In general, the case workers at the departments that handle child protective services for each state carry very heavy case loads that prevent them for focusing on individual cases to truly advocate in the best interests of individual children who are removed from their homes. As a volunteer, I am able to zero in on specific needs of a child (or children) and make meaningful recommendations to the court on what will best protect the child. While our hope is for reunification with the parents of a child, our primary goal is insure the child is able to return to a permanent, stable, safe and nurturing home as quickly as possible. I particularly appreciate CASA of Central Texas because permanancy within 12-18 months is a goal that is supported by Texas Child Protective Services, and the courts.

Role:  Volunteer & I will be advocating for abused and neglected children who are removed from their homes by the Texas Child Protective Services.
