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.

December 1 is Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday, now in its fourth year, is observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Created by 92nd Street Y (92y.org), a cultural center in New York City, #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

Here are some simple things you can do this Giving Tuesday:

Volunteer at the soup kitchen. While you and your family are enjoying your holiday meals, just think about others who don’t have the same luxury. Dedicate some time to volunteer at the soup kitchen or homeless shelter to help those in need. Invite family and friends to spread goodwill.

Host a food pantry drive. Ask your friends, family and holiday visitors to bring at least one food item when they come to your house. Then, you can donate those items to your local pantry.

Donate winter clothing and blankets. If you’ve got extra blankets or winter coats, don’t let them pile up in the closet. Take them to your local shelter or donation center.
