The Dawson/Gosper County CASA Program

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate

We are excited to share the remarkable achievements of the Dawson/Gosper County CASA program during the fiscal year spanning July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023. Our commitment to the well-being of children in our community has never wavered, and the numbers speak volumes about our collective efforts.

During this period, this CASA program has been a lifeline for 52 new children, with 54 ongoing children's cases under our care. We are thrilled to report that 46 cases were successfully closed, with 7 children finding their forever families through adoption and 21 children being reunified with their parents - a testament to the dedication of our volunteers and the positive impact they make in these young lives. 

Presently, we are serving 63 children, and our team of 36 devoted volunteers has generously contributed a staggering total of 1,359 hours, traveling 7,491 miles to support their assigned children, attend essential team meetings, and participate in court hearings. Our volunteers are the heart of our program, and their commitment allows us to maintain a 100% dedication to the children of Dawson and Gosper Counties

We are delighted to share that our recent volunteer training class, which began on June 28, 2023, welcomed two new dedicated individuals, Miguel Jaimes and Mark Gutierrez. Their addition to our team marks an exciting expansion of our male volunteer base, and we couldn't be prouder of the positive influence they bring to our program. 

As we look ahead, we remain committed to our mission of supporting and advocating for the children of Dawson and Gosper counties. We're actively seeking new volunteers who share our passion and dedication to making a difference in the lives of these children. Our next CASA training session is scheduled for January, and we encourage anyone interested to contact our office with any questions or to express their interest in joining our team.

Linda Shaw, Mark Gutierrez, Judge Jeff Wightman, Miguel Jaimes, and Helen Rodas

Thank you for your continued support in spreading the word about the invaluable work we do. Together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of the children in our community. 

Thank you for being so supportive!
