a collaborative response for
children impacted by abuse
The mission of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Tom Green County, is to champion the prevention of child abuse and to serve as an ally of abused children with a dedication to securing for each child a safe and nurturing home.
From its earliest days, the Children’s Advocacy Center has been successful in dramatically improving services to child victims of abuse, coordinated investigation of abuse allegations, and successful prosecution of abuse perpetrators. Its survival and continued growth over the past twenty years is testament to its vital role within our community.
When home is no longer safe for a child, and the child must enter the foster care system, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer called a CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocate. The volunteers focus is on the child, giving hope and help in guiding the child to a safe, permanent home.
Children right here in our community are waiting for a CASA volunteer. Are you ready to make a life-long difference in the life of a child and your own?
CASA training sessions are held in the evening, Monday through Thursday for two weeks from 5:30-9:00 pm. Dinner is provided each evening. Requirements include: 21 years of age, thirty hours of training (provided by the highly trained CASA staff), background check and an interview.
