    cASA FOR THE HIGHLAND LAKES

    We are currently advocating for over 270 children in Blanco, Burnet, Lampasas, Llano, and San Saba counties. We currently have 78 volunteers advocating for 227 children  and our Superhero Supervisors are covering 44 children in addition to monitoring their other cases. We need your help to provide these children with the advocate they deserve.

To become a CASA is to give a child a voice in the courts and a hope for a better outcome to their case. The purpose of a CASA volunteer is to be appointed by the court to advocate for children who come into the court system primarily as a result of alleged abuse or neglect.  The CASA’s role is to advocate for the child’s best interests in the court at every stage of the case once appointed by the court.  Additionally, the CASA’s role is to be an individual who respects a child’s inherent right to grow up with dignity in a safe environment that meets that child’s best interests.

In the 2019-2020 Fiscal year, we served CPS cases that involved 450 children.  We currently have 78 active dedicated volunteer Advocates covering over 203 cases.  Let us be more specific, many of these advocates are covering more than one case!  As you can see, this situation is desperate. We have had an increase in cases over the last fiscal year do to COVID-19.  Unfortunately, we currently have a list of children waiting for a CASA of their own.  All children deserve a happy and safe life.  CASA’s are a part of the multi-disciplinary team that puts this mission into action.  Now we need action from the great citizens of Burnet, Blanco, Llano, Lampasas and San Saba Counties.
