Recruiting Organization: CASA of Tarrant County

Want to support a child during their journey through foster care? Our CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers provide consistency and stability for a child during a very difficult time in their lives.

CASAs are court-appointed, trained and committed adult volunteers who ensure that each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system.

  • CASA volunteers get to know the child while also gathering information from the child’s family, teachers, doctors and therapists, care givers and anyone else involved in the childs life.
  • A CASA provides an important voice for a child in and outside of court.
  • A CASA volunteer provides a consistent presence in a child’s life during their time in foster care.
  • CASA advocates for family permanency for the child through reunification with family or adoption.
  • CASA volunteers help to reestablish healthy family connections and advocate for reunification with family.
  • Ultimately, the role of a CASA volunteer is to advocate for the best interest of the children.

Are you hearing the call to help a child? The first step on your journey to become a CASA is to attend an information session. Visit Become a CASA Volunteer -- CASA of Tarrant County (speakupforachild.org)
