In November we mentioned Dallas CASA had announced its 5-year, $37 million campaign, “Abused Children Can’t Wait,” in order to recruit more Court Appointed Special Advocates to ensure that every child in foster care has a CASA representative. That means Dallas CASA needed to double the number of volunteers within the next few years (and still does, if you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity).
In order to accommodate the new volunteers, Dallas CASA needed more office space. The organization already had maxed out its building at 2815 Gaston, so it began building a new building at Swiss and Texas in East Dallas.
In May, the Dallas CASA board of directors and staff were joined by Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones for a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening of its new 25,020 office facility east of downtown Dallas. Also attending the celebration were Dallas County government and judicial officials and area business and civic leaders.
