Just like a church or other charitable organization, CASA employs a staff to recruit, train, and support volunteers. Donations from all sources go to support the staff and maintain a physical office that staff and volunteers use as a training and meeting facility. Funding is needed to recruit, train and support a volunteer Advocate.
CASA’s budget is developed, approved, and monitored by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of community leaders. All income and expenses for the organization must pass an annual audit by an independent CPA and meet all requirements for a non-profit established by the IRS. CASA of Liberty/Chambers Counties must also meet the standards of quality annual audits by the Texas State and National CASA organizations.
