Join us in the fight against child abuse.
According to the CDC, at least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect in the past year, and this is likely an underestimate. In 2019, 1,840 children died of abuse and neglect in the United States.
Children and youth who have spent time in the child welfare system are more likely to face incarceration, homelessness, and unemployment. They are less likely to graduate high school and more likely to be trafficked.
For the past two years, CASA of Collin County’s volunteer advocates have remained committed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, providing best-interest advocacy for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.
Together, we have the power to prevent child abuse and create safe and caring communities. Help us raise awareness in the month of April, and throughout the year, to keep our children safe.
Ways to Support
Virtual Pinwheel Wall -To honor children and teens in Collin County who are victims of abuse, sponsor a pinwheel for $10. Pinwheels are the national symbol of child abuse prevention. Our goal is to fill our virtual wall with 401 pinwheels to represent the children we served in 2021.
The campaign begins on April 1. This is also a great way to honor or memorialize someone special.
