our mission

The mission of CASA of West Texas is to recruit, train and support committed volunteers who are appointed by the court to advocate for the best interest of children in the foster care system.

CASA of West Texas


CASA of West Texas supports volunteers who advocate for child abuse victims in Midland, Howard, Dawson, Gaines, Andrews, Martin and Glasscock Counties.  When severe child abuse and neglect occurs in a home, foster care may be the only option to keep a child safe.  When a child enters foster care, a judge will appoint a CASA Volunteer to advocate for that child's best interest in court and in the community.  Being in foster care is very difficult for a child.  Every child in foster care needs someone they can count on to be there for them...someone to speak up for them--an advocate.  Could you be that person? Learn more and get involved.

International Day of Peace

September 21st is no ordinary day—it is International Day of Peace. This is a United Nations day dedicated to world peace and the absence of war and violence. The first International Day of Peace was celebrated in 1982 and still celebrated today as a preventive means to reduce war sustainably. Here's a few ways you can do your part to spread love on September 21st.

Meditation—No single person can stop war unless you're Mahatma Ghandi or Nelson Mandela. Most of us just want to make the world a better place as much as we possibly can. Try meditation to put you in a loving, kind mindset everyday.

Random Acts of Kindness—Spread love throughout your life with simple acts of kindness. It doesn't have to be big or expensive. Just tell someone a compliment or gather a few of their favorite things when they're having a bad day.

Refugee Aid Kits—Countless families are constantly seeking refuge from their war-torn countries. Many lose all their valuables, belongings and even family members throughout the process of finding a new home. You can help them with refugee aid kits. Contact your local refugee agency and they'll help you gather items to send.
