Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Did you know that over 15,000 children in Oklahoma were victims of abuse and neglect in 2018? Tulsa CASA always needs caring, committed volunteers to advocate for children in foster care and ensure that their future is brighter than their past. Will you join us this month to change a child’s story? #iamforthechild#ENDchildabuse
New Advocate’s – March 2019
These lucky advocates had the privilege of being the first group of CASA’s sworn-in by Judge Carter! Also pictured is our advocate manager, Cheryl Wright, who came to CASA with years of experience as a DHS caseworker. We are excited to welcome Judge Carter, Cheryl, and our newest volunteers!
Volunteer Spotlight – March 2019
Carrie Mulder is one of our Dual Status CASAs, and one of our best! Our Dual Status docket is specific to youth who are both deprived and delinquent. Thank you for being dedicated to serving Tulsa area teens, Carrie!
New Advocate’s – February 2019
Congratulations to our new advocates! They completed the February training session and were sworn-in on Thursday — including our intern, Kelsey. Kelsey has been a big help with CASA Casino and other projects, and it’s a pleasure to have her in the office!
THANKS FOR COMING!
Many thanks to everyone who came out last night and supported our organization at CASA Casino! It was a great event and we really sent the ‘Gatsby’ theme out with a bang. We are already looking forward to next year — CASA Casino: Shaken Not Stirred is sure to be a night to remember in 2020!
THANK YOU TO OUR CASA CASINO SPONSORS!

New SmartBoard = Improved Trainings
Thank you to the Gelvin Foundation for providing a grant that allowed Tulsa CASA to purchase a SmartBoard! We are so excited to use it for improving our training sessions, lunch & learn’s and in-services.
Volunteer Spotlight – February 2019
Our Volunteer Spotlight this month is Doann Nguyen. She completed CASA training in June and although she has been with us for a short time, she works her case like a seasoned volunteer. Thank you for everything that you do on behalf of our program, Doann!
