Greetings, CASA supporters!
As the old saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, I would like to add that it also takes a village to provide advocates for children!
So many of you supported CASA during National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, and we are truly grateful.
Our sponsors, vendors and runners showed up big time for our CASA Superhero 5K on April 14 at the Cain Center in Athens. This is our only annual event fundraiser, and we could not have done it without you! Thank you for braving the chilly elements to make it a great morning. I want to also thank our staff and volunteers for setting up and breaking down the race site like champs. Together, we raised more than $10,000 for CASA of Trinity Valley!
These past weeks have also seen incredible support from our community organizations, and I would be remiss if I didn’t thank such groups as Athens Thrift Store, the Henderson County Commissioners’ Court, First Presbyterian Church, the Pinnacle Women’s Club, the Rotary Club of Athens, Texas, United Way, and the Methodist Men for their contributions. We are so humbled and grateful to have you all on our team!
As I glance at my calendar, I can scarcely believe we’re wrapping up April and looking ahead to May. Where does the time go??
Heading into the summer, we turn our attention to recruiting new advocates for children. Our goal is always to serve 100 percent of children in foster care in Anderson, Cherokee and Henderson counties with 100 percent volunteers – and we need you to make it happen!
If you are interested in becoming a CASA, or if you know someone who might be, please contact us today. We will be glad to answer your questions or get you an application! You can visit

Indeed, it takes a village to raise a child – and an even bigger village to support foster children! Thank you, sponsors, donors and volunteers, for being our village.
