Editor's note: CultureMap is committed to shining a light on San Antonio-area nonprofits and their impact on our community. So, we're launching the CultureMap San Antonio Charity Challenge, highlighting deserving local organizations — one of which will become our charity partner for 2016 based on readers' votes. To help you decide, get to know one of our six selected finalists, Child Advocates San Antonio.

Children deserve to be protected and loved, and it is the mission of Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) to see that all abused and neglected youth have someone in their corner with their best interest in mind.

CASA recruits, trains, and supervises court-appointed advocates who provide at-risk children with an adult they can trust. These advocates are committed volunteers who speak for the child in court and provide them with attentive care and support throughout the child’s case. Since its founding in 1984, CASA has successfully served abused and neglected children in Bexar County in a way that no other agency does.

Vote now for CASA — or any of the other worthy local nonprofits — in the CultureMap Charity Challenge running through December 30. A winner will be announced January 5, 2016, and will receive a CultureMap advertising package worth $10,000.
