Child abuse and neglect is an ongoing epidemic. It has a lasting negative impact on the victims, our society and our economy.
Last year in Texas,
- There were 66,572 confirmed victims of child abuse or neglect.
- Almost every 8 minutes, a child became a victim of abuse or neglect.
- 60% of child abuse or neglect victims were under the age of 6.
CASA volunteers speak up for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the foster care system. Last year, 45 volunteer Advocates served 157 abused and neglected children in Liberty County (90% of abuse/neglect cases). This may seem like an impressive number, but our mission is to provide an Advocate for EVERY abused and neglected child.
How can you help? To provide an Advocate for every child requires funding and every dollar you donate helps CASA train and recruit more Advocates so we can accomplish this goal. We’re calling on you, our neighbors in the community, to help us as generously as you can.
Thank you for your support for our county’s most vulnerable children.
