As a resident of Guadalupe County, I am saddened that our county, as of today, has not supported CASA in 2013. CASA of Central Texas is Caldwell, Comal, Hays and Guadalupe Counties. We are supported by the other counties. What has happened? Appointed by the court as a VOLUNTEER, we save our county money!!

I can not say it any better than the Board member that wrote the following in 2011:

Before I learned about CASA, I would constantly ask myself, "Who is speaking up for these kids?"

Now I know the answer to my question! CASA!

CASA of Central Texas recruits, trains, and supports amazing individuals who generously give of their time and energy to make sure that all kids have a voice in court, and that each child's concerns and best interest are both presented to and respected by the people and systems involved in his or her case.

As a board member, I have learned much more about the day-to-day functions of the CASA staff and volunteers. There are so many dedicated people in this organization, and we are especially fortunate to have incredibly talented leadership, enabling the program to set and achieve goals for increasing the number of children served.

Clearly, CASA of Central Texas is among the most respected, nonprofit volunteer organizations serving children in Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe, and Hays counties. From state representatives to local businesses to school teachers, CASA's reputation is widely known and well deserved because of the amazing, caring, and talented volunteers and staff who make all the great work possible!

We follow these kids from the start to the finish. It is NOT a one time visit!!

As a teacher of students with special needs, I've worked with may students who literally cannot speak for themselves. And, unfortunately, a disproportionate number of my students (and of all students with special needs) have been removed from their parents' custody and placed in the foster care system.
