CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Walker, San Jacinto, & Trinity
Counties provides a trained advocate to every abused or neglected child that has
been removed from their home by CPS. The role of the advocate includes
developing a relationship with the child, monitoring the on-going safety and well-
being of the child, and advocating for the child’s best interest in ongoing court
hearings. CASA Advocates decrease the amount of time children spend in foster
care, decrease the number of times children are moved between foster homes, and
give the child a constant person to lean on until a safe, permanent home is found. Today, CASA of
Walker, San Jacinto, & Trinity Counties is providing services to 100% of the child welfare cases
originating in San Jacinto County.
CASA is always in need of volunteer advocates to serve as the voice for the children in our program. Pre-
Service Trainings are scheduled to begin February 20, 2018 & April 21, 2018. This 26 hour interactive
classroom training course provides individuals from all walks of life with the tools and knowledge
needed to advocate for our community’s most vulnerable kids. Members of the San Jacinto County
community are welcome and encouraged to join us! Janet Davidson can be contacted with any
questions. J.firstname.lastname@example.org or 936-291- 6363.
The picture below is CASA’s current training class. They began their training January 20 th and will be
taking on cases as child advocates in February.
