Voices For Children, the Court Appointed Special Advocates program for the Brazos Valley, has just been awarded certification by the National CASA Association. This certification recognizes Voices For Children in compliance with National CASA’s high standards for quality child advocacy.
According to Tara Perry, Deputy CEO/Chief Operating Officer of the National CASA Association, “The National CASA quality assurance process is very rigorous, and reflects our commitment to ensure every child served has a powerful volunteer advocate working on their behalf and a strong program supporting their work. This certification says Voices For Children has demonstrated to us the capacity to provide excellent advocacy to the abused and neglected children within their community.”
Voices For Children began serving abused and neglected children in Brazos County in 2001, expanded to Grimes County in 2006, and Burleson County in 2009. To date, the program has advocated for approximately 900 children, with more than 750 youth navigated into permanent, safe, and loving homes.
