While the temperature is hovering near 100 degrees the Fred & Mabel R. Parks Foundation, Child Advocates of Fort Bend staff, committee members, decorators and homeowners are gearing up for the 22nd annual CASA Christmas Home Tour.  “Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation has had a long standing relationship with this agency and with our Home Tour. 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.

Sponsors and volunteers are needed to support the Home Tour. If you would like to participate, please contact Lisa Moore at 281-344-5108 or lmoore@cafb.org.
