Justice Is Served

The Honorable Judge Rod Paasch swore in eleven new CASA volunteer advocates on Monday, November 21, 2016, at 2:00pm in the 317th District Court at Jefferson County.

CASA of Southeast Texas has a goal of providing a volunteer for every foster child in Jefferson County to represent the child’s best interest in cases of abuse and neglect. Without CASA volunteers, the children have no voice. The eleven new advocates are Teressa Leblanc, Megan Hemmenway, Rachel Steward, Kelli Young, Tomie Gipson, Victoria Martinez, Leah Birkby, Cordell Harris, Joan Hill, Tiffany Lofton, and Iesha Gilmore. These individuals have completed over thirty hours of training to be sworn in as a Court Appointed Special Advocate.

Why should I order a Court Appointed Special Advocates Specialty Plate (Big Voices for Little Texans)?

When home is no longer safe for a child, and the child must enter the foster care system, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer called a CASA or court appointed special advocate. The volunteer's focus is the child, giving hope and help in guiding the child to a safe, permanent home. Proceeds from these attractive plates directly benefit your local CASA that recruits, trains, and supports CASA volunteers.

How much does the license plate cost?

A single set costs $30 while personalized sets cost $70, both in addition to regular registration fees.

How much of the proceeds from the license plates go directly to my CASA program?

Of the $30 from each license plate, $22 comes to Texas CASA and $11 to the local CASA program.

How do I know which CASA programs will benefit from my license plate purchase?

The CASA program in your county of residence (or the address where your plates are registered) is the local program that will benefit from your license plate purchase.

When can I get the Court Appointed Special Advocate plate?

Today! You can purchase one at any time online by visiting www.texascasa.org and clicking on "BUY THE PLATE." You can also visit your local tax assessor's office and ask for the Court Appointed Special Advocate license plate.

"Come One! Come All! For The Greatest Day of All!" Those were the words resonating through the hallways of the Jefferson County Courthouse as it was turned into a Circus Big Top for National Adoption Day 2016. Seventeen children were officially adopted into their forever homes. This is a day that really means so much to CASA and the volunteers serving these children. It's a celebration for all of the diligent expended to secure permanent placement in a loving, safe home for our children.
