Would you recommend Child Advocates, Inc. - Houston?

This is a terribly damaging organization. I've been involved with the CASA program throughout the country, which CA claims to be part of. They are not. CASA is an exemplary program that has attorneys in court with volunteer advocates. CA has no attorneys, and the staff are young, self serving and are damaging to children and families. CA enables the social workers for the state (court feels like happy hour, not the somber event that it is) and empowers abusive foster homes. Advocates for children are forbidden to have their own views, and present them in court. That is not how advocacy programs work. Advocates are to be there to protect the child, without agenda. CPS cases are complex, and the volunteers who want to help are unwittingly contributing to damaging families. Please stop buying the lies that this organization is snake oil selling. This is NOT a good organization to lend your time or funds to. There are ample worthwhile organizations that actually help hurting families.
