All of the new CASAs have accepted cases and are advocating on behalf of abused and neglected children in the five counties we serve.
In 2013, CASA for the Highland Lakes Area advocated on behalf of, and facilitated therapeutic and legal resolution for over 200 children. Since January 2014, we have received many new children into care.
CASA volunteers provided a voice for abused and neglected children in the five counties of Blanco, Burnet, Lampasas, Llano and San Saba. Our small victims need big voices. Won’t you speak up for a child in crisis?
Volunteer Training will begin the week of March 3, 2014. The training is offered at the CASA office in Kingsland
