CASA of West Texas to host training seminar

Staff Writer

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) of West Texas will hold training session starting July 11.
Last year, more than 46,600 Texas children were in the child welfare system, waiting to be placed in permanent homes. Victims of abuse and neglect, these children were removed from their homes through no fault of their own and placed in the overburdened child welfare system. Stuck in a cycle of moving from foster home to foster home, many children lose hope of ever finding their forever families.
CASA volunteers help children move through the foster care system and into safe, loving and stable homes as quickly as possible. Currently in Howard County, there are 136 children in the child protection system but only 25 CASA volunteers.
