Why superheroes:

Superman was adopted. Spiderman was raised by his aunt and uncle. Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred, and later took in Robin to raise as his ward. Wonder Woman was made out of clay by Amazons and brought to life by the gods. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.

About CASA:

CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. After intensive training, background checks and being sworn-in by a judge, volunteers are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 15-20 hours a month advocating for these children for the lifetime of a case. CASA of Travis County was founded in 1985 and supports close to 750 volunteers who advocate for more than 1,800 children a year. CASA of Williamson County was founded in 2009 and supports over 125 volunteers who advocate for more than 250 children a year. CASA of Central Texas (serving Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe & Hays Counties) was founded in 1985 and supports more than 250 volunteers who advocate for nearly 600 children a year.
