CASA of Southeast Texas, Inc. was recently awarded a grant from the Foundation For Southeast Texas.

This grant will assist CASA of Southeast Texas with the expansion of advocacy services to vulnerable children.

The grant’s primary purpose is to buy Reunification Starter Kit items for children in foster care whose parents or caregivers have successfully gone through the process of doing everything required of them for reunification to occur. This allows the children to return to their homes of origin.

For more information about being an advocate, call the CASA office at 409-832-CASA (2272) or email lwoods@casasetx.org.
