CASA of Travis County exists to promote and protect the best interest of children who have experienced abuse or neglect, by training volunteers to advocate for them in courts, in schools, and in our community to help them find safe, permanent, and loving homes.
What We Do
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Travis County believes every child who's experienced abuse or neglect deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school, and in our community. To accomplish this, CASA educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child's needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. When the state steps in to protect a child's safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained volunteer advocate to make independent and informed recommendations and help the judge decide what's best for the child.
