From a recent volunteer graduate...

Recent volunteer graduate Sandra Petrick said, "I am so excited to now be an official CASA volunteer! I've been searching for a cause to volunteer my time and I wanted to work with children and chose CASA to pour my time into. Neglected and abused children need a voice, and I'm so blessed to be a part of this movement. If you are looking for a place to volunteer your time and love children, I encourage you to go and check out CASA of Tarrant County." Thank you Sandra for your dedication to helping the children in our community!

Texas Lawmakers Urge For Foster Care System Reform

There is a high rate of children who go into foster care who age out and have a very high likelihood of homelessness or crime,” [Chrystal Smith, executive director of Austin-based Foster Village] said. “A lot of it comes back to foster care­—there could have been a difference made while those children were in foster care versus pouring resources [against] human trafficking and homelessness. Those are worthy causes, but if we can kind of intercede earlier when they are in foster care, that’s a great opportunity to help potentially prevent some of those problems.”
