SAVE THE DATE – Tuesday, may 22nd
CASA for Kids of South Central Texas invites YOU – OUR CASA ADVOCATES – to join us for an evening of fun and fellowship so we can show our appreciation of the work that you do for our program and for our children. THANK YOU just doesn’t seem like enough.
CASA Volunteers get to know the child and gather information from everyone involved in his or her daily life, including family members, foster parents, teachers, daycare providers, doctors, lawyers, social workers and other relevant persons. They spend a significant amount of time with the child, gaining his or her trust. CASA Advocates use the information gathered to report to the judge, advocating for the child’s needs while in the foster care system. As a Volunteer, you commit to represent a child’s best interests until the child reaches a safe, permanent home.
TOGETHER WE CAN. TOGETHER WE WILL. was the theme at a recent Volunteer Power Unleashed Summit hosted by Texas CASA. Texas CASA CEO Vicki Spriggs stated, “the theme of the event was “Together We Can. Together We Will.” – because none of us can achieve our goal of a CASA volunteer for every child alone. It takes a village; a unified network with a shared passion and vision. More children may be entering the system, but I take heart in the fact that at the same time, more and more people are stepping up to give these children a voice. The dedication of the CASA network – the CASA volunteers, staff and board members across the state – is an unstoppable force that is sweeping our communities.” To read Vicki’s entire article click here: https://texascasa.org/together-can-together-will.
So CASA Advocates MARK YOUR CALENDAR and STAY TUNED for details …
In the meantime, THANK YOU for ALL you do! You truly are a GIFT to our Community and to our Children!
