Rock with the DJ, dig into 50’s grub, call dibs on Silent Auction items, get a kick out of the Treat Walk, snag Mystery boxes, hang out with cool cats, and have a blast!

It is in a child’s best interests to remain with their family of origin when safely possible. National Kinship Care Month is observed in September to celebrate grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives who open their homes for children and youth when their parents are unable to care for them. CASA/GAL volunteers identify and recommend services to support kinship care families. tap here to Learn how you can help a child in foster care.Johana joined CASA on September 14, 2022, as a Case Supervisor in Smith County.

One voice. A child’s voice. They should be laughing, joking, and giggling. They are silenced by abuse, neglect, and an unknown home. Who will be their voice for this child in matters that affect the rest of their lives?
One voice. Your voice. You can speak for a child. You can change a child’s story. tap here to Watch a short video on child advocacy
Imagine a child that you know and love is in a bad situation. Maybe there are drugs involved. Perhaps abuse. Then they are in foster care.
Imagine that child being with strangers. Perhaps in a new school. It doesn’t matter that home is scary. It is all they know. They just want home. They want their stuff, their friends. They do not know what happens in their home doesn’t happen in other homes. It is all they have known.
What if someone stepped up to say “My name is …. I’m going to help you through this.”? What if that someone was you?
Let us tell you more. Please. Children are waiting. tap here to Learn how you can help.
CASA volunteers stay by a child’s side throughout the case, advocating first for reunification when safe and possible.
Stay up to date on what’s happening with our program, upcoming training and community events. We love to talk about our volunteer CASA program, how it changes children’s lives, and how you may volunteer in many ways.
