Review for CASA Of Central Texas, Inc., New Braunfels, TX, USA
Work with children in the CASA program is a centralized process of multiple services and supports, often provided by multiple organizations, to meet the needs and strengths of each child, young adult person, or family. This process generally follows a strength-based approach of the child and family team when developing a service plan.
CASA and the Court services for families involved in child well-being can be achieved through family group decision-making, team decision-making, overall case management, and so on. CASA plays a pivotal role in all aspects of a child's life, often until this child ages out of the system. The Advocate is a crucial figure offering encouragement, support, and teamwork with Supervisors, Attorneys, and the courts to find a positive path forward for the child's success and, most often, the families.
This work and responsibility require a village (CASA). Ultimately, CASA and the families they represent reap a high sense of achievement when the parties' work reaches a positive conclusion. After more than 13 years as a CASA, the rewards were greater than one can imagine, and the CASA team mastered all aspects of the assigned cases. There are no other organizations in my view that can equal the level of accomplishments in the representation of children in the court system. "CASA" is "the Voice" that changes one life at a time.
