ROARING FOR A CAUSE

Voices for Children CASA appreciates your interest in learning more about our volunteer community! VFC ROAR, which stands for Recruitment, Outreach & Advocacy Representatives, is a team of volunteers and community partners dedicated to helping Voices for Children CASA of the Brazos Valley connect with the community on a greater level.

VFC ROAR is a short- and long-term volunteer-match program that provides volunteers with meaningful volunteer experiences that match their gift/talents, and passions with our mission-driven opportunities.

Projects range from greeting visitors during community festivals & fairs in Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon and Madison Counties in Texas; helping us prevent child abuse and neglect; and helping with our upcoming pickleball tournament!

If you prefer a longer-term assignment, working directly with children and families, we also have opportunities for CASA volunteers, https://www.vfcbrazos.org/become-a-casa.

We hope you decide to join us!

About Voices for Children, Inc. - Bryan

Location:

115 North Main Street, Bryan, TX 77803, US

Mission Statement

To improve the lives of children in foster care through powerful volunteer advocacy until each child is placed in a safe and permanent home.

Description

Each year, approximately 780,000 children in the US are caught up in the court and child welfare maze because they are unable to live safely at home. Imagine what it would be like to lose your parents, not because of something you did, but because they can't--or won't--take care of you. Now, into these children's lives come dozens of strangers: police, foster parents, therapists, social workers, judges, lawyers, and more. Hopefully, one of these strangers is a CASA volunteer.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive.

Voices For Children was formed in 2000 with this vision in mind. As a member of both National CASA and Texas CASA, we have advocated for more than 400 children, over 75% who have already found a permanent and loving home. It is the goal of Voices For Children to provide a CASA volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child in Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Freestone, Leon, Limestone, and Madison counties.
