The Dallas Mavericks are longtime supporters of Dallas CASA and the vulnerable children served by the agency. Dallas Mavs CEO Cynt Marshall serves on Dallas CASA’s Board of Directors and is currently vice chair and chair-elect, as well as a Dalls CASA volunteer advocate, along with other Dallas Mavericks employees.

Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children removed from unsafe homes. For many children living in the protective care of the state, their CASA volunteer is the only consistent, caring adult during a frightening time. In 2020, 1,527 Dallas CASA volunteers were assigned to advocate for 3,374 Dallas children.
