CASA volunteers are critical for the safety, well-being and future of each child in CPS custody. The information that CASA volunteers obtain through their thorough investigations aids the Court in making more informed decisions that directly affect the best interests of the children. When a CASA is appointed to a case and speaks for a child, the end result is a more positive and stable outcome for that child. From the perspective of a County or State taxpayer, there is no better use for our funds, in the area of child protection, than the use of trained and professional CASA volunteers."
- Ellis County Judge

It is the mission of CASA of Navarro County to recruit, train, and supervise community volunteers, so that every abused and neglected child in our county who needs a CASA will have one.

CASA is a national volunteer movement that began more than 30 years ago. CASA volunteers provide the court with the detailed information needed to protect the children's best interests and ensure that they are placed in a safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.
