To The Leader


CASA of the Sabine Neches Region will be hosting the annual Justice Is Served! A fundraiser where local dignitaries within the community, including judges, attorneys, law enforcement, school officials, and business leaders will participate in this event by serving as “celebrity wait-staff”.  

Breakfast is not the only thing to be served up during the Ninth Annual Justice IS Served! (JIS) event set for 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. on Friday, May 24 at Elijah’s Café in Jasper, Texas. 

The plight of so many abused and neglected children in Jasper, Newton, Orange, Hardin, Tyler and Sabine counties will be presented, along with the success stories of local volunteers.

Attendees of JIS will find that the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for CASA of the Sabine Neches Region are making a real difference in the lives of children.

Celebrity Waitstaff will be on hand to serve eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and more for the annual fundraiser.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges, they receive training, and are matched with a child or children in foster care. Judges report that the CASA volunteer is the voice for the child, providing valuable information for that child’s future.

The paid staff working within the juvenile office, social services, and caseworkers are overloaded with the demands of many cases. The CASA advocates for one child or one case.

CASA of the Sabine Neches Region is a not-for-profit organization which depends on grants, private donations, and fundraisers. The Justice IS Served! event is a major CASA fundraiser. Sponsorships are now being sought and tickets are now available.
