“It is rewarding-and sad- to see and hear the gratitude for very small acts of kindness, from kids who have never felt they had anyone to depend on. I told one of my CASA kids recently how much I admire his ability to make the best of a bad situation after his father- his one parent abandoned him and left the state. He said that if the person who was supposed to love him and care for him treated him that way….. He’d better learn to take care of himself. That saddens me, but it also inspires me to help him achieve his goals. There would be some justice in that.”

– Ken,
CASA Volunteer Advocate since 2011

CASA of Collin County

Imagine what seems like a normal day and you hear a knock on your door. Suddenly there are people all around you, police officers, Child Protective Services, and social workers. One of these strangers takes your hand and leads you to the door away from the only family that you have ever known. You are taken away without even a minute to grab your clothes, your belongings, or even time to say goodbye. These strangers are talking all around you and even about you but not one of them is talking to you. Your life as you have known it is gone and you have just been sentenced to time in a confusing and unpredictable child welfare system.

This is a reality experienced by some children who are removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect and placed into the foster care system. CASA of Collin County is asking for your help this year during North Texas Giving Day to bring a positive light into these vulnerable children's lives! #ntxgivingday2019

"I see children who have been traumatized and who have been removed from their homes. Kids at 2 and 3 who test positive for methamphetamines because their parents were drug addicted. That's tough."

For these children, there is a CASA. Someone who steps into the traumatic moments and says "you are NOT alone." Not everyone can be a CASA volunteer, but everyone can make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.

Your gift on North Texas Giving Day will ensure that there is a CASA volunteer for the abused and neglected children in our community. YOU can make a difference! Visit us at www.northtexasgivingday.org/casa-of-collin-county to schedule your donation!

3 days until North Texas Giving Day! Did you know it costs $2,000 to serve an abused child for an entire year, which is less than what it costs for a child to remain in foster care for a month? Your donations help make the positive difference for abused and neglected children in foster care.

CASA of Collin County Under New Leadership

For CASA of Collin County’s new executive director, Tricia Clifton, the organization’s mission is personal. As an infant, Tricia was removed from her home, moved to multiple foster homes, until being placed for adoption at 18 months. Tricia understands, firsthand, the magnitude of CASA’s mission to promote and protect the best interests of children who have been abused and neglected.

“Most people understand that CPS removes severely abused children from their homes, but few people realize the difficult, lengthy court process these vulnerable children face as they search for a safe, loving, permanent home,” said Clifton. “Our advocates are the eyes and the ears of the court, working to ensure children receive the services they need to heal and thrive.” With a passion for giving back to the community, Tricia Clifton has spent more than a decade serving at risk youth and underserved populations around the world. She has led both corporate and nonprofit teams at WorldVentures and WorldVentures Foundation, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Back on My Feet and Youth Villages by successfully turning challenges into opportunities to enhance programmatic outcomes.
