CASA of Travis County
Transitioning Youth Program
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Travis County recruits, screens, trains, and supervises volunteers to provide Guardian ad Litem representation for abused and neglected children to help them reach safe, permanent, and loving homes. Impact Austin’s grant aids the Transitioning Youth Program expansion, providing support to an estimated 100% of the cases assigned by the courts for youth ages 14 to 18 who are at risk of leaving foster care without being adopted or having a network of support to prepare them for adulthood. The program utilizes innovative services for youth, specialized training for volunteers, and broader networking with community partners to ensure that these very vulnerable youth will be able to transition to successful and independent adult living.
