Brush Country CASA's mission is to recruit, train and support community volunteers to help guide children through the foster care system. Our goal is to serve 100% of the children in our service area. In 2018, Brush Country CASA served a little over half of the children in care. In 2019, CASA is pushing really hard to change that percentage. Part of our plan is to engage with the community by partaking in more community events with the hopes of reaching more potential volunteers. This quarter CASA took part in 7 events including the Healthy, Wealthy and Wise Health Fair in Kingsville, The Santa Gertrudis Family Fun Night in Kingsville, and the "SAFE"cation Event in Alice. CASA also hosted our first Dinner with CASA event in Alice, Texas on February 21, 2019 which was a success bringing in over 20 people to learn more about our program.
