DALLAS CASA is looking for a few good men.
In 2021, more than 1,500 Dallas CASA volunteer advocates served 3,113 children removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. While more than 50% of these children were boys, only 17% of our current volunteer advocates are men.
MEN of CASA show what a good man is.
Many children in foster care have suffered a lack of male care and guidance in their lives. Many do not have fathers to guide them and show them what a good man is. These children need to experience the positive presence of safe men.
Boys in particular need positive male role models. Younger boys in the child welfare system rarely see healthy male role models who can help make sure their needs are met and their voices are heard. Teenage boys frequently age out of the foster care system without finding permanent homes or family connections that will help them become productive adults.
As a volunteer advocate, you will be part of protecting and safeguarding a child from harm. You will gather facts and make recommendations to a judge, advise and consult with CPS caseworkers, help guide the outcomes of a high-intensity situation and champion a child’s right to be safe.
