About Dallas CASA

"People ask me how I can do this kind of work – they say that they couldn’t handle hearing our CASA kids' sad stories. What’s truly sad to me is knowing about these children and choosing not to do anything. They are a valuable part of the future and our community. They deserve the best help we can give them."
