Texas CASA Videos on Roles in Child Welfare Cases
Texas CASA partnered with the Children’s Commission to develop new resources to explain the role of the professionals involved in a child welfare case. The following five handouts and accompanying videos are available in both English and Spanish, and can be used as a set or individually:
- The Judge
- The Guardian ad Litem or CASA Volunteer
- The Attorney ad Litem
- The Parent’s Attorney
- The Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) Attorney
The target audience for these resources are individuals who are involved with the child welfare system, including parents, children, youth, and kinship caregivers.
The resources may be publicly accessed on the Texas CASA website, and both the English and Spanish versions of the video may also be found on the Texas CASA YouTube channel.
