Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Denton County will celebrate its 30-year anniversary on Feb. 14 with a free-to-attend ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at its recently-opened volunteer training center in Denton.

The facility at 614 N. Bell Ave. opened about a year and a half ago, Development Director Tina Corbett said. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ribbon-cutting ceremony was incorporated with the organization’s 30-year anniversary, she said.

CASA of Denton County has raised community awareness of child abuse since February 1992 after it gained the support of residents and five county district court judges, according to a news release.

In its first year of operations, CASA served four children. Now, the organization serves over 650 children annually and has aided more than 10,000 children over the past 30 years, according to the release.

“The past 30 years have only strengthened the commitment to the CASA mission, which is to provide trained community volunteers; to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children; and to promote community awareness about child abuse issues,” the release stated.
