The annual Casas for CASA raffle fundraiser, hosted by CASA of the South Plains, was an enormous success! Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets and helped support our mission to provide a CASA Volunteer to every child in foster care. Casas for CASA once again partnered with the West Texas Home Builders Association (WTHBA) at the Parade of Homes in Stratford Pointe. Raffle tickets were sold for the opportunity to win a custom built playhouse or doghouse. Because of the overwhelming support from members of the South Plains community, CASA of the South Plains raised $29,545 in ticket sales that will be used to help recruit, train, and support volunteer Advocates who are desperately needed to speak up for the well-being of abused and neglected foster children. A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, is a volunteer who helps a foster child navigate the child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met while working to help find safe, permanent homes. CASA volunteers make a tremendous impact in the lives of the foster children they serve and more are needed to help make sure foster children do not have to face the chaos of the child welfare system alone.
Congratulations to all of our Casas for CASA winners!
