“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

Last year, more than 30,000 Texas children had the support of a CASA volunteer, but that still left too many children facing the child welfare system alone. With your support, we can reach every child in need.

There are several ways you can help the vulnerable children in Colin County - visit www.casaofcollincounty.org to find out how!

"I wish that people knew that these are good kids. These are kids in Collin County and in some cases they are living in the same neighborhoods that we live in, on the same streets that our kids play on and they just need someone to fight for them!"

Oftentimes, the vulnerable children that are served by CASA are placed into a whole new environment with the uncertainty of what is going to happen to them. For these children, there is a CASA Volunteer. A person who fights for them and makes sure that their voice is being heard.

How can you help? CASA's 16th Annual Golf Tournament is coming up on October 22 and we would love for you to participate. The funds raised during this event will go back into training and supporting our CASA volunteers! Register here: CASAofCCgolf.givesmart.com/

The Reliant Gives campaign involved a week-competition between three Texas nonprofits (including CASA).

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.
