About Us

How We Got Started

CASA of Williamson County, TX is a part of a national volunteer movement that began in 1977 when Judge David Soukup in Seattle decided he needed to know more about the children whose lives were in his hands. His solution was to ask community volunteers to act as a “voice in court” for abused and neglected children. These Court Appointed Special Advocate® (CASAs) provided him with the detailed information he needed to safeguard the children’s best interests and ensure that they were placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. The program was so successful that it was duplicated around the nation.

CASA has continued to serve abused and neglected children in Texas for almost 40 years, providing trained community volunteers for every child who was assigned to the program through the court.

CASA of Williamson County, TX became its own 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, self-governed by a volunteer board of directors in May 2009.
