CASA of Tarrant County

When home is no longer safe and a child must enter foster care, a judge may appoint a CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocate, a volunteer to guide that child to a safe and permanent home as quickly as possible. Approximately

275

children are waiting for an advocate

Every year, hundreds of children are legally removed from their homes in order to protect them from further injury. As a child moves through the maze of the judicial system, the volunteer advocate is often the most consistent person in that child’s life. Children with a CASA volunteer: Have shorter lengths of stay in foster care (18.3 months in 2016, 19.5 months in 2017) Compared to children without a CASA (23.2 months in 2016). Are less likely to reenter care once they find a permanent home.

Are more likely to pass all classes in school.

95% of children whose cases were closed in 2017 found permanency (adoption, relative placement, reunification)

CHILDREN

VOLUNTEERS

Tarrant County has the

3RD HIGHEST

number of confirmed cases of child abuse and/or neglect in Texas

5,630 CHILDREN

were confirmed child abuse victims in 2017, up 9% from 2016

In 2017,

418 CASA VOLUNTEERS DONATED 42,000 HOURS of their time (an equivalent of $1,013,880) and drove 260,000 MILES

The cost of action is far more affordable than the cost of inaction. When intervention does not take place, research shows that children, more often than not, become lost in the system, repeating the cycle of abuse and ultimately ending up on the streets, filling our local jails and prisons.

159

new volunteers were trained to be advocates in 2017

559

families were served, providing 1,022 children a voice in court

50%

of children served are between the ages 0 and 5

CASA of Tarrant County trains volunteers from all walks of life, ages and ethnic groups. Being a volunteer advocate requires no advanced educational degree or legal experience. But it does require special people with concern for children and a genuine desire to help.


BLAKE’S STORY Blake’s first confirmed case of abuse was the day he was born when his little body tested positive for drugs. At age 4, he was abused again before being adopted by a relative. Tragically, he continued to be abused and neglected and was eventually placed in foster care at age 15. For 11 years, this child endured the darkest pain, and as a teen, he was isolated and alone. With no clear sources of family support other than his teenage sister Erin, he was expected to age out of foster care unless someone intervened and spoke for him. That’s when he met his CASA volunteer, Steve. Steve began working tirelessly to find a way out of foster care for Blake. When Blake’s behavior worsened he was sent to live in a Residential Treatment Center, four hours away from Erin. That’s when Blake gave up all hope- “I knew I was probably looking at a bad future.” But behind the scenes, his CASA Steve was Blake’s champion, making sure he wasn’t lost to his family. Steve refused to let another teenager get lost in the system. Blake said he knew Erin, now 21, was his last hope for getting out of foster care. “She was my angel.” For Erin, her “worst fear was that he would get stuck in foster care.” Once she turned 21, she wanted to become Blake’s permanent home, but she didn’t know how to become an approved placement. This is where Steve stepped in. Steve helped Erin navigate the CPS system to bring Blake home, and his advocacy finally gave Blake hope for a brighter future. Thanks to the commitment of his CASA volunteer, Blake was able to move in with Erin the day after school was out this summer. Your donation gives children like Blake the critical voice they need in foster care! P.S. Blake is now a happy teenager living with his sister. “Some people think living in the mountains or by the beach is paradise. To me, this is paradise.” – Blake

Hope Works Both Ways.

Our Mission CASA of Tarrant County and its court-appointed volunteers advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children

Our Vision

A clear voice, a safe home and a bright future for every abused and neglected child living in foster care in Tarrant County

our Promise Raising a voice against the unspeakable

OUR PROGRAM CASA of Tarrant County is a volunteer-powered organization that works solely for the benefit of children caught in the foster care system through no fault of their own. CASA volunteers are individuals from our community who believe that every child, regardless of their background or circumstances, deserves to be in a safe and loving home. Volunteer advocates serve as the judge’s eyes and ears, speak up for the child in court, and recommend whether the child should stay with his or her parents, be placed with relatives, or be freed for permanent adoption. They are regular people making a remarkable impact.
