CASA: Beginning of school year often reveals child abuse, neglect


“CASA of Parker County has spoiled me because there has always been a volunteer available (when requested),” Buckner added. “If it were not operated so efficiently, I would be worried all the time as to whether a CASA volunteer would be available to assist the court. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that volunteers are available 100 percent of the time.”

This school year, become a CASA volunteer and help children in need find safe, permanent homes. New training classes begin Sept. 9. For more information, visit online at or call 817-599-6224 (Parker County) and 940-325-1096 (Palo Pinto County).
