CASA volunteers are specially trained and appointed by judges to speak up for a child and advocate for their unique needs in court, at school and in other settings. They also get to know the other adults in the child’s life, including foster parents, caseworkers, counselors and more, and work with them to ensure the best interests of the child comes first.
The new year has brought many new cases of child abuse and neglect in Galveston County. CASA of Galveston County is currently serving 166 children with a volunteer advocate, but an additional 60 children are currently without a volunteer to speak up on their behalf.
To help with this URGENT need visit www.casagalveston.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can become an advocate. Click here to download a copy of our May-June Information Session dates.
Thank you in advance for helping the children of Galveston County have a voice!
