“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

"Working in education, I saw the impact that being removed from a home and coming into the state’s care can have on children. Out of sadness and frustration, I turned to CASA to be part of the solution. Serving as a CASA Volunteer has been very empowering. It got me connected to the problem and allows me to invest my time, care, knowledge, and skills to make a difference for the specific children I am assigned. Even in the hard moments, I have witnessed love and hope and teams of people working to give these children an opportunity for a brighter future and it is so rewarding." ... See MoreSee Less

"As I neared retirement from public education, a friend recommended that I volunteer for CASA. She told me that CASA would be a perfect fit for me because of my experience in education. I think she was right.There are many children and families who are navigating their way through the foster care system. Serving as a CASA has allowed me to give voice to those children and offer support and assistance to their families. The work is hard and sometimes frustrating, but always meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling." ... See MoreSee Less

McKinney’s Trinity Falls’ Pumpkin Patch drive-through raises thousands for CASA!

With the spread of COVID-19 increasing, Trinity Falls opted to host a drive-through pumpkin patch with appointments to limit the number of people gathered. “We wanted to help families safely engage in a beloved fall tradition,” Marley Mitchell, a Trinity Falls marketing employee, said in a news release. “People visiting the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin for jack-o-lanterns and porch decorations. They also plan their holiday photos around those visits. This was a fun way for them to do that and raise money for a great cause.”

Thank you Trinity Falls for raising thousands of dollars for CASA of Collin County!

CASA of Collin County Renovating to Expand Services

“The CASA of Collin County office in downtown McKinney, located at 101 E. Davis St., is expected to undergo renovations later this month that will allow the organization to expand its reach.

Renovations will include a new floor plan inside the facility that will create a more open work environment. Training space will be expanded as well as the advocate and staff community resource area. The new floor plan also allows for more offices and cubicles.

The Collin County office operates with 18 staff members and 250 active volunteers, but renovations will allow staff to grow to 30 members, said Tricia Clifton, CASA of Collin County executive director, in an email.

The building will also have a capacity of up to 50 people in quarterly advocate training classes.”
