How to Join Header

"So many of the children we work with come from families where parents and even grandparents were abused. I wanted to help break the cycle of violence. Our children deserve the chance to become successful adults, and they often only need someone to believe in them to make it happen."

~ Sandra T., Dallas CASA volunteer since 1997
