Cor Appointed Special Advocates of Harrison County, TexasChild feels at home


“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Mahatma Ghandi



That welcoming Spanish phrase is true on every level at CASA of Harrison County. With the exception of a very small administrative staff, volunteers do all the work. Our funding depends largely on charitable donations. It’s truly your CASA. And there are many ways you can contribute to making your community a better place to live.


Whether you want to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate, help out at the office, or just lend a hand at an event, if you care about others, we can teach you everything else you need to know. We’ll give you the training and resources to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children and their families.


Heavier caseloads and reduced governmental funding make our services to the community, and our dependence on charitable contributions, more critical then ever. As a 501c3 organization, all cash and in-kind donations to CASA of Harrison County are tax deductible and carefully managed to directly benefit abused and neglected children.


With the help of community partners, CASA sponsors fun and entertaining events that heighten awareness of the plight of abused and neglected children as well as raise needed funds. You can help, too, by volunteering or simply attending. Click the link to see upcoming events.

“We care to make a difference.”
Sandra Shirey, CASA AdvocateSandra Shirley

“CASA volunteers show the community, parents and children that people really DO care what happens to their families– someone who isn’t getting paid to care.

“As a public school teacher I see children’s problems (and successes) daily, but working as a CASA volunteer has made me more aware of my community, the needs of its children and the difference we can make in the lives of displaced children. It’s extremely fulfilling.”
