CASA – Immediate Need in Van Zandt County for Advocates for Children in Crisis

May 12, 16 • Featured NewsNo Comments




The number of children removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse is a rapidly escalating crisis in Van Zandt County.

CASA for Kids of East Texas served 42% more children in Van Zandt County in 2015 and expects the number to continue to climb throughout 2016.

Do you love children?  Do you believe all children deserve to have their basic needs met and to have someone who advocates for their best interests?  Do you like to investigate and research and figure things out?  Do you have an interest in court proceedings?  If you answered yes to several of these questions, then let’s talk!

As officers of the court, CASA volunteers research a child’s situation and unique needs and then submit reports to the court and advocate on behalf of the child’s best interests.

Join us for a CASA for Kids of East Texas Town Hall Meeting

Published by Charles West 

On Tuesday, May 10, 2016

6 pm to 7 pm behind City Hall and in front of the Fire Station.

City of Van will be holding a remembrance of the storm event

that occurred on May 10, 2015, which devastated the city, and surrounding community.

While the event is not something we want to celebrate, we do think it is important to take the time to remember those that we lost and the event that changed our community and city forever.

The City will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers as a way of saying thank you to the community for coming together and showing the world what is the true definition of a community.
