Growing and Giving

Texas Bar Foundation

Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) received notification from the Texas Bar Foundation that we were granted $10,000 in support of the new Crossover Youth Practice Model.

Extensive research has clearly indicated that young people who have been abused or neglected are at an increased probability to engage in delinquent behavior. Despite these findings, little has been done within the child welfare or juvenile justice systems to interrupt their troubled trajectory. In 2010, The Center of Juvenile Justice Reform introduced the ‘Crossover Youth Practice Model’ (CYPM), which was developed to address the specific needs of ‘Crossover Youth’ who are simultaneously receiving services and/or supervision from both the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. Child Advocates San Antonio is currently one of five metropolitan CASA agencies implementing a CYPM in Texas.

Langmore Photography

The Langmore philosophy reflects a desire to capture the soul of the subject. It seeks to reveal intimate relationships between brothers and sisters, children and parents, mothers and newborns. It searches for individuals unaffected.

This philosophy is what led Will Langmore to CASA. As the children’s cases come to an end and adoptions are finalized or reunifications occur, Will provides the opportunity for the families and advocates to gather together to capture the joy of the occasion. Each photo highlights the celebration of a successful outcome and the hope for a brighter future.

Every family receives a donated photograph as a heartfelt keepsake. Additionally, a photograph of the Advocate and children is given to CASA as a thank you for the service we provide to the abused and neglected children in Bexar County.
