The Denton County Kinship Fair is a community service project that serves abused and neglected children in the Greater Denton County area. CASA of Denton County along with the Greater Denton County Young Lawyers Association (“GDCYLA”), and the Denton office of the Department of Family & Protective Services together coordinates this annual event to benefit families and friends that generously make room in their homes and lives so that children may avoid foster care. Unlike foster homes, however, these friends and relatives are not eligible for the same monthly financial assistance. CASA, GDCYLA and DFPS identified a need for assistance and the Kinship Fair was born. This event is a great opportunity for CASA Advocates and Kinship placements to not only have fun with children currently navigating the child welfare system but it also serves as a wonderful way to ensure all families have the resources they need to be successful.
