CASA McLennan and Hill Counties is excited to host an informational session each month to help grow our CASA Community. “CASA 101” events will be held the last Tuesday of every month from 6 to 7 p.m. at the CASA offices, located at 2223 Austin Avenue, Suite D for anyone looking to volunteer to make a difference in a child’s life.
CASA of McLennan and Hill Counties recruits, trains and gives support to everyday people who act as volunteer advocates for children who have suffered abuse and/or neglect and found themselves in foster care.
These volunteers look out for the well-being and best interests of these most vulnerable children, acting as independent and objective fact finders who speak with the child’s parents, teachers, extended family members, neighbors and most importantly – the child. They work with the attorneys, social workers and child protective services workers. CASA volunteers provide information to the professionals and especially to the judge, who has the tremendous responsibility of making decisions that affect the very lives of the children. Information provided by CASA volunteers helps to ensure decisions made in each case take into account the child’s best interests.
