Professional with expertise in this field
CASA of Central Texas is a high impact organization that trains community volunteers to become court-appointed advocates for children in the foster care system. The volunteers are assigned one child or set of siblings at a time and can therefore devote the time and attention that the children and their needs deserve. These dedicated volunteers truly make a difference in children's lives by helping to get them the services they need to heal from abuse or neglect, helping to find permanent and caring families for these children, and by just being there to listen if the child needs someone to talk to.
