CASA of the South Plains strives to inspire, educate, and empower solution-minded community members who are committed to supporting the best interest of children in the foster care system and who have experienced abuse and neglect. Through court appointments and collaborative efforts, volunteer advocates share informed recommendations for the well-being of the child, ensuring each child’s needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. Volunteer advocates create connections and promote nurturing relationships for the child and family, encouraging hope and healing.
In 2020, CASA of the South Plains provided advocacy services to 590 children. That same year, 282 CASA volunteers donated 7,349 hours, saving taxpayers $404,195 in county paid attorneys’ fees. With the help of their CASA volunteer, 248 youths in foster care found permanency.
If you’re still wondering how you can become an advocate and help, you just need to become a CASA volunteer. You may also become a CASA donor, with recurring monthly donations through Heroes for Hope. You may also host a CASA 101 Informational Session where CASA will come to your business and educate your staff about its mission and goals. For more information, click here or call (806) 763-2272.
