20141113_101532_resized_1webCASA held a kickoff for their Capital Campaign November 13 at the Hays County Government Center in San Marcos, where supporters saw plans for the facility and heard from local elected officials.

“We support you fully at the county court, we support what you do,” said Hays County Judge Bert Cobb. “You get more than you give when you work with CASA, I guarantee you that.”

The campaign aims to raise $2.6 million for capacity building including a 6,000 square-foot training and support center for the program in 2016.1410_Casa SM_EV-3_Bldg True South (1pm)_Rev 2

“This area is growing, and so is the need for our services,” said JoAnne Germer, CASA of Central Texas Board of Directors President. “San Marcos is the fastest growing city in the U.S. and as the population increases, so does the number of children who are being abused – we’ve seen an average increase of 5-10 percent every year in the number of children who are in the state’s protective custody. We need this new facility to train and support more advocates for the community’s children.”

The new facility will allow CASA to work toward the goal of providing a CASA volunteer to all of the children in State Care.

“We believe that every child deserves a CASA volunteer,” said CASA of Central Texas Executive Director Norma Castilla-Blackwell. “To accomplish this, the first step is to make sure we are equipped to properly train and support those volunteers. This new facility will allow us to do that, and I hope everyone will come join us as we begin this new venture.”
