Voices for Children

Voices for Children, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of the abused and neglected children of the Brazos Valley.  Voices for Children recruits and trains community members to become Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers.  CASAs advocate for a child or sibling group through the child welfare system until the child or siblings can be placed in a safe, permanent, and nurturing home. They serve as a link between the child and the court system to ensure that the child is not lost in the cracks of the larger foster care system. 

Our mission is to improve the lives of children in foster care through powerful volunteer advocacy ensuring that each is placed in a safe and permanent home .

History of Voices for Children

The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program was created in 1977 in Seattle, Washington by Judge David W. Soukup, who was overseeing cases where a child or children were removed from their homes and placed in the state's custody because of abuse or neglect. While attorney "guardian ad litems" were appointed to these children, they were generally too busy to conduct the in-depth investigation that was required. Social workers responsible for the cases were often already spread too thin to devote extensive time to each child's case.  Click here to read more about Voices for Children history.
