    Help abused and neglected children with a gift today!

    Your investment makes a difference.

    Our ability to protect a child from further abuse and pave the way to a safe, loving, permanent home depends on your donation.  Research shows that children with a CASA do better than those without one.  Children who have a CASA perform better in school, reach permanency more quickly, and are kept from being lost in the system.  Your participation and unrestricted gift strengthen our ability to support the abused and neglected children of Smith, Wood, and Van Zandt Counties.  Join us for #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2022. 

  • TexasCASA

    Join your neighbors in providing a joy-filled holiday for the foster children CASA for Kids of East Texas serves.  Hundreds of children in Smith, Van Zandt, and Wood counties, are hoping for all the things that other children wish for.  Help fulfill wishes (some needs, too) by donating a gift card to be used directly for a foster child.  Purchase gift cards at TylerCASA.com, our Amazon gift card list, or make a gift card purchase and drop them off at CASA.

    We are grateful for everything you do year-round for the kids.  Thank you for continuing to be a blessing to so many.  TylerCASA.com

    The hardest part isn’t saying goodbye to a child you’ve championed through his time in foster care.

    It isn’t speaking up for his needs in court.

    It isn’t working together with social workers and family members toward a common goal.

    It isn’t learning how to advocate for a child and help him navigate the system.

    The hardest part is deciding to make a difference.

    Every Child Has A Chance – It’s You!™

    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.

    Many in our community do not know who we are or what a court appointed special advocate does. If you need a speaker for a meeting or event, PLEASE CONTACT US.

     

CASA volunteers stay by a child’s side throughout the case, advocating first for reunification when safe and possible.
