Our Programs

Court Appointed Special Advocates™ (CASA™) program 

                                  

CASAs are trained community volunteers who are appointed by a district court judge to be the eyes and ears of the court and step into the courtroom on the children's behalf.  Volunteers have the ability to focus solely on one case at a time.  These dedicated volunteers follow a child or sibling group through the child welfare process and advocate for them at each interval, with no other vested interest other than what is in the best interest of that particular child.

Incredible Years Parenting Series

Incredible Years is a parent resource group in the Bryan/College Station community available to parents of school aged children. Voices for Children/CASA of Brazos Valley and Scotty’s House Child Advocacy Center are joining efforts with two area experts to offer this resource for children and families.

The class will be 12 sessions that meet weekly and will be based on The Incredible Years: a successful, evidence-based parenting class. With the strengthening of a positive relationship, the improvement of communication skills, and the expansion of supportive parenting strategies, parenting classes such as The Incredible Years have been identified as an effective tool.

The Links for the Future: A Parent Resource Group will use a community format to educate parents on non-punitive ways to manage their child’s misbehavior and to create a social support system of other parents.

Visit www.linksforthefuture.org or call Scotty’s House at (979) 703-8813.
