New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 17, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZdlfund O Wednesday ri 9 CASAGRAM Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children In CaMWell J A11 Child Abuse CASA Speaks Up For Abused Children Scott was an abused child At age four Scott was removed from his home and placed in foster care after his father was sentenced to three years in prison for severe injury to a child Scott ended up in our child welfare system an overburdened and underfunded network of lawyers social workers and judges No one has the time to pay close attention to Scott and his need for a safe permanent home More than likely Scott will remain adrift in foster care for months even years Thats where CASA can help CASAs are Court Appointed Special Advocates trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to speak up for abused and neglected children in court CASA volunteers are carefully screened and receive 40 hours of training prior to being sworn in by the district court Their responsibility is to collect information interview all parties in the case and make recommendations to the court for the childs permanent placement Because they are independent and not concerned with caseloads and financial constraints CASA volunteers make things happen They can help secure a safe permanent home for the child more quickly And because CASA children spend less time in foster care the program also saves the state money CASA of Central Texas has been training advocates and serving children in Comal Hays and Caldwell counties since 1986 The program relies on state and federal funding as well as individual contributions and events Its current fundraiser Cantos for CASA is a playhouse raffle which will raise funds to train more community volunteers to do this vital child advocacy work Local builders have donated their time and talent to build three original childrens playhouses which are on display in the New Braunfels store Raffle tickets are being sold for each The drawing for the playhouse winners will be on April 22 Coma and Counties DID YOU w v A If cost to one child in foster care children are reported as abused neglected br abandoned children are confirmed
