The mission of CASA of Denton County, Inc. is to provide trained community volunteers, to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children, and to promote community awareness about child abuse issues.
CASA of Denton County, Inc. trains volunteers from all walks of life, ages and ethnic groups to act as court-appointed advocates for abused and neglected children. The volunteer determines what is in the child's best interest by: *Interviewing the child, parents, family members, school officials, health providers and others who know the child's history. *Review all records assigned to the case, including school, medical and Child Protective Service reports. *Making a report to the court, giving testimony in hearings, and working with attorneys and other professionals involved in the case to determine what is in the child's "best interest".
