Casa of the South Plains celebrated 20 years in Lubbock Thursday. 

The court-appointed special advocates organization began in a small room in 1993. It now employs 13 and serves a six-county region. At its anniversary luncheon, the organization honored State Senator Robert Duncan for his legislative efforts to support abuse and neglected foster children. 

Duncan received the Todd Monroe Reno Champion for Children award. 

"One of our goals is to make sure that our children placed in foster care are placed in a safe permanent home, that is our main mission," CASA Board Member Tommy Turner said. "We went from having no CASA volunteers to over 100 today, and a CASA volunteer is a trained person who basically shephards a child's case as it goes through the court systems."

CASA always needs volunteers. For more information, click here
