CASA of West Texas supports volunteers who advocate for child abuse victims in Midland, Howard, Dawson, Gaines, Andrews, Martin and Glasscock Counties. When severe child abuse and neglect occurs in a home, foster care may be the only option to keep a child safe. When a child enters foster care, a judge will appoint a CASA Volunteer to advocate for that child's best interest in court and in the community. Being in foster care is very difficult for a child. Every child in foster care needs someone they can count on to be there for them...someone to speak up for them--an advocate.
