Volunteering for Dallas CASA means advocating for children, making sure they have what they need to heal from the abuse they've experienced and helping to find them safe and loving homes. Dallas CASA volunteers come from a variety of professional, ethnic and educational backgrounds, and all have a desire to help abused children.
We'd like to introduce you to some of the dynamic volunteers who help create change in the lives of our County's most vulnerable children.
I had heard about CASA many years ago through a variety of sources. Growing up, I knew many children whose parents were sometimes harsh in their discipline to the point of maybe overdoing it. I volunteer because I want to help children and their families break the cycle of violence.
There are so many children in this community who are going through things with their families. When I learned about CASA, I realized that this was an opportunity to make a direct impact on the life of a child. CASA volunteers are people who choose to be there for children in times of crisis.
There are so many abused and neglected children out there and every single one of them needs a CASA representative. When you're successful in a case and get to see a child doing well after a very tough situation with their family, it is just really gratifying.
