Our Mission

The Mission of CASA is to serve as an independent voice in court for abused and neglected children of Wise and Jack Counties.   CASA volunteers are trained and court appointed to investigate, monitor, report, and serve as advocates in court for abused and neglected children’s best interest.  The CASA volunteer is there to help secure a permanent placement in a safe and caring environment for the child whom he/she serves as a voice in court.

Our Services

Who We Are

Promoting and protecting the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in court proceedings through the advocacy efforts of trained volunteers. Serving children in Wise and Jack Counties.


When a child enters the child welfare system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to advocate for the best interest of the child in court and other settings. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate.


A donation to CASA of Wise and Jack Counties is an investment in a child and the community. With your gift, you can help the CASA program to provide the very best volunteer advocacy for children removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. The children appreciate your support!

Upcoming Events

September 5th–CASA SCRAMBLE

September 17th–North Texas Giving Day

CASA of Wise and Jack Counties cannot comment directly on the situation involving our former Executive Director, as the matter is now in the hands of law enforcement and the District Attorney. We can assure everyone that, once the financial mismanagement was discovered, the Board, with the cooperation of the rest of the Staff, took immediate action to protect the program, both by contacting and cooperating with appropriate law enforcement and by separating the former Executive Director from the program, both physically and electronically.

In everything we do, CASA of Wise and Jack Counties is dedicated to serving the best interest of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. The Board believes the strength of that commitment continues to shine in the community we serve, as evidenced by the amazing support we continue to receive from that community. Our services to children were not disrupted at any time and will continue due to the commitment of our volunteer Advocates, Staff, and Board.

The CASA organization is unified in moving forward. Our organization is financially stable and has been able to meet unprecedented growth in 2019 and 2020. Our volunteer advocate group has more than doubled in that time allowing us to serve more children. We are and will remain committed to being a voice for children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
