Don't miss the inspirational and miraculous journey of Josh Shipp! Statistically, Josh should be in jail, homeless or dead, but his success as a preeminent author, speaker, and global youth empowerment expert is living proof of the power one caring adult can have in a child's life. A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families. He has written two national bestsellers to date, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, which won the Nautilus Gold Award for Parenting & Family and The Teen’s Guide to World Domination. He has a truly hopeful and inspirational story!
By sponsoring this event, you help provide a powerful voice for a child in foster care---you give them a CASA volunteer. Without a CASA and without your support, these children are forced to navigate through an overburdened child welfare system that is hard pressed to meet their needs. Without a CASA, they can easily be re-abused or neglected in foster care or be returned to an unsafe home. CASA volunteers fight for the child's right to grow up in a safe, permanent home. CASA of West Texas served 513 foster children in seven West Texas counties last year which is 98% of the children in foster care in our service area. Help us serve 100%. Every child in care deserves a powerful voice. Be that voice for foster children by sponsoring this event!
