Governor Greg Abbott

“A key focus of mine as Texas’ Attorney General was protecting and fighting for Texas children who, through no fault of their own, were facing difficult and often heartbreaking circumstances. As my office worked to advocate on behalf of these most vulnerable Texans, I came to realize that we needed a strong partner in our effort to help abused an neglected children overcome the challenges they are facing. Whether it was a young child who needed a mentor, or a child who needed a caring guide through what can often be complex legal proceedings, CASA was the partner we were looking for and continues to be an invaluable resource and partner for children in need.”

– Greg Abbott, Texas Governor
