Board of Directors

Board of Directors

CASA of Freestone and Limestone Counties in Texas is committed to advocating for the best interest of abused and neglected children. CASA recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who advocate to ensure that each and every child is permitted to grow up in a safe, nurturing and permanent home. We also work hard to provide education and resources with the primary goal of keeping families together. This board provides oversight for these services as well as raises funds to train, and provide the care of our local children who need help.

A diverse Board of Directors representing each of the two counties we serve (Freestone and Limestone) helps CASA identify needs in the community, and provides the support and connections required to meet those needs. By serving as a Director for CASA of Freestone and Limestone Counties, you have a genuine opportunity to have a direct, positive and lasting impact for your community.

There’s a lot of responsibility in choosing to become a Board member. Board members must have the ability and knowledge to set policy and approve programs that become the basis for operating the nonprofit. A Board member does not manage the day-to-day business of the nonprofit.

A Board member must have the time, or be willing to take the time, to attend monthly Board meetings as well as special meetings, committee meetings and seminars. Seminars and educational workshops are necessary to keep informed about Board service and the programs we provide as an agency.
