While you’re trying to beat the heat, committee members, decorators, Child Advocates of Fort Bend staff and Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation are gearing up for the 21st  Annual Child Advocates of Fort Bend CASA Christmas Home Tour.  “Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation has had a long standing relationship with this agency and with our Home Tour and we are so excited that  they came forward to kick off the sponsor drive again this year,” according to Ruthanne Mefford, Child Advocates of Fort Bend Executive Director.

Proceeds from the Christmas Home Tour help Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) advocate for the needs of abused and neglected children in this community. Through its two programs, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), the agency touches the lives of more than 400 young victims each month. 

A Fort Bend holiday tradition, the Tour offers guests the opportunity to view  beautifully decorated homes in Fort Bend County, while helping to raise much needed funds to support CAFB’s programs serving abused and neglected children. Volunteers are needed to serve on the Home Tour Committee which helps to plan, coordinate and run this event. If you would like to join the Home Tour Committee, please contact Lisa Moore at 281-344-5108 or lmoore@cafb.org
