Child Advocates recruits, trains and supports volunteers who provide a voice for abused and neglected children in the Houston area. As Harris County’s Court Appointed Advocates (CASA) program, we provide lifesaving advocacy that helps children exit foster care to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
Our advocates provide the judges with recommendations about where the children they help should live permanently. Throughout the case, our advocates maintain contact with everyone involved in the children’s lives; from foster parents, biological parents, therapists, Child Protective Services caseworkers and attorneys. They make sure the children are receiving the medical and psychological help they need.
Advocates dry tears, give hugs, and occasionally throw birthday parties, too. Most importantly, they serve as a ‘constant’ person for the children to count on during a very difficult time.
Essentially, our volunteers do whatever it takes to ensure that the needs of the children are being met while they are in care.
