About CASA


OUR MISSION

The mission of the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Denton County, Inc. is to provide trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children and to promote community awareness about child abuse issues.

OUR VISION

A safe, permanent, and loving home for every child.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Denton Country is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. This organization is governed by an all-volunteer board of directors and is a member of the National and Texas CASA programs. Abused and neglected children who have been removed from their homes by CPS (Child Protective Services) are given a court-appointed CASA volunteer. This volunteer investigates and monitors the child’s situation while they are in alternative or foster care. Then, within a 12- to 18-month time frame, the volunteer will recommend, in the child’s best interest, what permanent placement they feel is best to the child’s presiding judge.
