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."

~ Marcia C., Dallas CASA volunteer since 1984

Our Volunteers

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 asked some of the dynamic volunteers who help create change in the lives of our county’s most vulnerable children about their volunteer experiences with Dallas CASA.


Dallas-CASA-Volunteer-Tracy-SM

Tracie W. – I wanted to be part of something that makes a difference in the community, and children being abused and neglected is unfortunately a problem in our society. I genuinely care about the welfare of children and wanted to help them.


Dallas CASA Volunteers - DavidDavid R.  I’ve always been passionate about giving a voice to the voiceless and have been involved in organizations that serve the voiceless. For me, time is the most precious resource I have to give, and I realized this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to give my time to kids in need.


Dallas CASA Volunteer - AngelaAngela L. – I grew up in a home that was love-rich but money-poor, and my parents were a huge source of love and support in my life. My dad feels his job is to “catch” and I always say little girls can do a lot when they their daddies are there to catch. My parents made me brave and bold, and I’m forever grateful. I knew I wanted to give back. It’s part of who I am.


Dallas CASA Volunteer - EstelaEstela S. – A mother at my son’s school was doing the CASA training. I told her I could never do something like what she was doing. Having to witness abuse, even on paper, was too much of a challenge for the heart of a mother. But she said to me “I like to be part of the solution,” and that stuck with me.


Dallas CASA Volunteers - Frank and WinstonWinston and Frank M. – We’d heard about Dallas CASA from other CASA volunteers and then saw a booth at a convention. The organization and the idea of helping kids in need always intrigued me. While we had provided a two-parent home for our four children, I was raised by my aunts and uncles and grandparents. I had a story, and I knew others did, too.
