About Dallas CASA
Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) trains and supervises community volunteers who advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from unsafe homes. Supported by professional staff, volunteers gather information and make recommendations to help judges decide the services each child needs to heal from trauma and the best outcome for a safe and permanent home. For many foster children, a CASA volunteer is the only consistent, caring adult during a frightening, uncertain time. Now in its 43rd year, Dallas CASA serves more children than any of the more than 900 CASA programs nationwide. In 2022, 1,324 Dallas CASA volunteers were assigned to advocate for 2,611 children in protective care. CASA depends on the community's generosity and commitment to make sure every child in need has a CASA volunteer advocate. To learn more, visit dallascasa.org.
