The program expanded to Cass County, Texas in 1992. In 1995, under the direction of 8th Judicial District Judge Jim Hudson, advocacy services expanded to Miller County, Texarkana, Arkansas, and then into Lafayette County.
Under the direction of Judge Ted Capeheart, CASA expanded into the Arkansas counties of Little River, Howard, and Lafayette. With the guidance of Judge Duncan Culpepper, we expanded into Hempstead and Nevada counties.
CASA for Children strives to provide Hope, Healing, and Justice by empowering volunteers to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children. CASA is the only volunteer organization invited into the court to provide advocacy for these children.
The purpose of the Texarkana Children’s Advocacy Center (TCAC) is to provide an environment for the evaluation of child abuse, which minimizes trauma to the child, optimizes the investigative process, and promotes overall healing.
