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.

How to Throw a Fundraiser Birthday Party

If you’re one of those people who dislikes their own birthday because it’s too much attention, then a fundraiser birthday party is for you. Basically, you use your birthday as an excuse to raise awareness and money for a cause you are passionate about. You could limit the invite list to your friend and family, or you could open it up to co-workers, community volunteers and even more. Here are your three tips to throwing yourself a fundraiser birthday party:

Digitally fundraise—For those family members and friends who feel uncomfortable sending money in the mail, set up an account on a fundraising website for people to donate online. You could set it up through Razoo, Punchbowl or even create a landing page on the nonprofit’s website that is solely focused on your fundraiser birthday party.

Showcase nonprofit—The most important part of your fundraiser birthday party is educating your guests on the particular cause. Take it a step further and host your birthday party at the nonprofit’s offices, and, of course, invite all the nonprofit employees and volunteers to your party.

Serve themed-food—Think about the cause that you’re fundraising for. How can you lend the cause to a birthday party theme? Maybe you’re fundraising for animal rights, so you have everything animal-themed and serve animal crackers. Think along those lines to make it more fun.
