CASA of Ellis County will foster Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) Volunteers to protect the best interests of abused and neglected children and to advocate in the court system for family reunification or placement in an environment that is safe, nurturing and permanent.
CASA of Ellis County is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to improving the lives of abused and neglected children in our County. CASA recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who are selected to act as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) to be a voice for the child in court. CASA of Ellis County is part of a nationwide organization of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) with 955 programs and 75,000 volunteers nationwide.
We are all responsible for ensuring the safety of our community's children. The law requires any person who believes a child is being abused, neglected or exploited to report the circumstances to DFPS.
Any person suspecting abuse and not reporting it can be held liable for a misdemeanor or state jail felony.
If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, contact the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) toll free at 1-800-252-5400, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You may also file a report using the secure web-site of the Texas Department Of Family Protective Services Here.
In the United States, over one half million children are in foster care because they cannot safely live with their families.
CASA volunteers work to ensure that these children do not suffer further abuse due to the overburdened court system
or at home.
