CASA of Collin County, Inc.


What We Do
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Collin County advocates for the best interest of children in foster care. Since 1997, we have served 100% of the abused and neglected children removed from their homes in Collin County. Within 24 hours of the removal, CASA is appointed by District Court Judges as the child’s guardian ad litem. As the child’s official voice in court, CASA works tirelessly to make sure the child (and parents) receive the services needed and the child’s case moves through the system as quickly as possible. The goal is for each child to be reunited with family if appropriate or to be placed in a safe and loving forever home if reunification is not possible.

How We Do It
CASA volunteers are everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes. One CASA Volunteer Advocate and one casework supervisor remains on each foster child’s case during the long and complicated process in search of a safe and loving forever home. Besides visiting face-to-face with each at least twice a month, CASA advocates obtain first hand information from all parties involved in the child’s life and provide independent testimony in court. A child who has a CASA volunteer by their side receives more services, moves through the system more quickly and has a better chance of a successful outcome, than a child without a CASA.
