“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 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.
