Image_202010121231

CASA of Red River or Court Appointed Child Advocates serve abused and neglected children that have been removed from their home. We strive to have a CASA appointed to every child but unfortunately, we get new cases every week. We desperately need volunteers to spend time and advocate for these children who need a little extra love and care.

We offer multiple classes at different times of year. You can call 817-823-2105 or email bcole@casawf.org or fill out an online volunteer application at www.casawf.org to reserve your spot now!

Mission Statement

Child Advocates - CASA of Red River serves the most innocent and vulnerable of our community, children who have been abused or neglected. Our children are in the child protection/foster care system and rely upon our volunteers to advocate for their best interests and to speak up for them in court. We believe all children should be loved and feel safe.

Description

CASA of Red River is part of a national volunteer movement that began in 1977 when Judge David Soukup in Seattle decided he needed to know more about the children whose lives were in his hands. His solution was to ask community volunteers to act as a "voice in court" for abused and neglected children. These Court Appointed Special Advocate(r) (CASAs) provided him with the detailed information he needed to safeguard the children’s best interests and ensure that they were placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. The program was so successful that it was copied around the nation.

CASA of Red River has continued to serve abused and neglected children in Archer, Clay, Montague, and Wichita Counties by providing trained community volunteers to speak up in court for the best interest of children.

CASA of Red River is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors and a member of the National and Texas CASA Associations. There are more than 1,000 CASA programs nationwide and 72 CASA programs in the state of Texas.
