About CASA Cake Smash Challenge 2022

It's hard to believe our little program in Brenham, Texas is turning 15 years old this year. In those 15 years, thousands of children have been supported, encouraged and loved by one of our Volunteer Advocates and staff.

Hundreds of everyday volunteers became trained Advocates to speak up for the best interest of a child, while supporting permanency and normalcy throughout the life of the case. 
Help celebrate our 15th Birthday and raise awareness about Child abuse during Child Abuse Prevention month by supporting our #CASAcakesmashchallenge
If we meet our program goal our Board President and Executive Dean of Blinn College, Dr. John Tuner, has volunteered to take a cake to the face.
If we double our goal Waller County Judge Trey Duhon and Judge Tim Lapham Austin County Judge will also take a cake to the face!



What does CASA do?

CASA volunteers are community members that work collaboratively to support children and families involved in the foster care system. Our volunteers come from different backgrounds, neighborhood and communities just like the kids they help. Each volunteer goes through training to learn how to advocate for the best interest of children and their families before being assigned to a case by a judge.

After they complete their training, they will be able to ensure a child's best interest is being met and that the child's voice is heard:

  • Identifying and addressing risks to the child’s safety and well-being.
  • Identifying supportive people in the child’s life that CASA can work with to maintain safe connections throughout the child's life.
  • Ensuring appropriate physical and mental health assessments are completed and the child’s needs are understood by the family and everyone involved in the case through a trauma-informed approach.
  • Verifying educational assessments are completed and educational supports are in place.
By supporting CASA for Kids of South Central Texas you will help us maintain a sense of urgency to all children’s cases and recognize that permanency is essential to their well-being.
