Help Make a Difference in a Childs Life

The Jessica Hargis Group, Champion Sponsor of the 9th Annual Superhero 5K race is asking everyone to join in helping Lone Star CASA by participating October 28th race on the Square in Rockwall, Texas.

Lone Star CASA’s mission is to advocate for all of the foster children of Rockwall and Kaufman Counties during their time within the legal system.  Last year CASA volunteers served 213 children, and are currently advocating for 138 children.

 By joining The Jessica Hargis Group in a morning of running and family fun you will be help advocates be the voice of abused and neglected children in need.

CASA volunteers are people like you. They’re teachers, business people, retirees, stay-at-home moms, grandparents, college students; extraordinary people who want to make certain the voices of abused and neglected children are heard.

CASA volunteers get to know the child and speak to everyone involved in the child’s life, including their family members, teachers, doctors, lawyers, social workers, and others.
The information they gather and their recommendations help the court make informed decisions. CASA volunteers commit to a child until the case is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home.

Judges truly value the observations and recommendations of CASA volunteers, knowing that they have the child’s best interests at heart.  CASA volunteers help shorten the time a child spends in foster care.  Children with a CASA volunteer are less likely to re-enter the child welfare system once their case is closed.  CASA volunteers help children and their families receive the services they need.  CASA has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice as a model juvenile delinquency prevention program.
