“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

Last night, HB72 was passed in the Texas Senate! Thank you, Angela Paxton, for fighting for the vulnerable children in Collin County and across the state! As Senator Paxton mentions, this bill ensures that children with severe medical conditions will maintain medical coverage by allowing adoptive parents to retain their current STAR healthcare plan, minimizing disruption and maximizing continuity of care. This is a huge step forward for our children!

Angela Paxton
Children with disabilities and severe medical needs are disproportionately represented in the Texas foster care system.
HB 72 ensures high-needs children with severe medical conditions maintain medical coverage by allowing adoptive parents to retain their current STAR healthcare plan, minimizing disruption and maximizing continuity of care. Great working with Chairman State Rep James White and CASA of Collin County for this simple compassionate piece of legislation. #txlege #HB72 Texas CASA, Inc.

With a CASA volunteer, youth typically spend less time in foster care, and receive better access to support and services. There is no exact ‘road map’ on how to volunteer, there are a multitude of factors that come into play. But if you have a powerful voice, you have the ability to speak for those who are unable to speak for themselves. #CASAofCollinCounty ... See MoreSee Less

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. She is committed to serving as their voice within the court system as an advocate did for her when she was a young child.

“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.
