Name: CASA Superhero Run and Brunch
Date: October 31, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Every year thousands of abused and neglected children in Texas are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. That’s where CASA of the Pines steps in. When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge appoints a committed volunteer from CASA of the Pines to help them. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1995 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children suffered at home did not continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. In 1999 CASA expanded to Houston County, and to Polk County in 2003. Since 1995 CASA of the Pines has served more than 1,000 abused and neglected children in Angelina, Houston, and Polk Counties. ?Fundraisers such as the CASA Superhero Run helps provide funds to the children within the CASA program and to advocates who volunteer their time to travel to visit these children while providing a positive role model during the child's time in the foster care system.
