The V&E Austin office recently hosted a fundraiser and awareness campaign to raise funds to support Texas CASA’s work. Texas CASA believes every child deserves to be protected and cared for. As the state organization of 72 local CASA volunteer advocacy programs, Texas CASA's mission is to support these programs and to advocate for effective public policy for children in the child protection system. The work of the local CASA programs across the state helps give abused and neglected children a voice so that they can receive the services they need to grow into happy, successful adults.
Marina and Patrick Breeland, a V&E partner, kicked off the campaign with a generous donation, stating: “It shouldn’t be hard to be a kid, but there are a staggering number of children in Texas who are neglected and abused. We feel strongly that every child deserves love, support and a safe environment, so we feel honored to be supporters of CASA’s mission and volunteers.”
