[Children are playing on a playground while soft music plays] Every child deserves to grow up safe and happy, but did you know that last year in Tarrant County, 685 victims of abuse and neglected were removed from their homes and placed in foster care? After children are removed from their homes, Court Appointed Special Advocates (known as a CASA), become a powerful voice for each child. [Advocate and child high-five] CASAs visit the child and collaborate with families, caregivers, teachers, and child protection professionals to ensure the child’s needs are being met. Sadly, there are not nearly enough CASAs as there are children in foster care (400 children are waiting). So I ask you… isn’t it time you did more than say it’s unfair or wish you could do more to help these children?
