"The constant thought that runs through my head is that, although we can’t change a child’s past, we can change their future. We can show them that adults can be trusted and remind them that they aren’t to blame for what happened to them. And we can teach them that someone cares about each of them."

~ Sandra S, Dallas CASA volunteer since 2002

Help Recruit

We need your help to recruit volunteers. On an average day in Dallas, nearly five children enter foster care because it’s not safe at home. In 2016, 1,768 children in Dallas County were removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. More than 4,600 Dallas County children were in the child welfare system during the year. Sadly, Dallas CASA was only able to serve three out of five abused children in protective care who need us.  A CASA volunteer can make all the difference in the life of an abused child. Dallas CASA’s vision is to provide a trained volunteer advocate for every abused child living in protective care in Dallas County.

We are looking for volunteers from every walk of life who share a commitment to improving children’s lives. We need volunteers from all areas of the community, and we are especially in need of more African American, bilingual and male volunteers.

There are many different ways to get involved in recruiting Dallas CASA volunteers. Please join us in our efforts to make sure that every abused and neglected child in Dallas has a CASA volunteer advocate to speak for them.
