About the Superhero Run
The Child Advocates Superhero Run powered by Direct Energy is designed as a family fun event and includes 5k and 1k courses to participate in. Everyone can become a superhero for the day by wearing their favorite superhero costume to the run. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness so that we can continue our work as heroes for some of Houston’s littlest victims.

 

About Child Advocates
Child Advocates recruits, trains and supports volunteers who champion for children in foster care. As Harris County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program, we provide lifesaving advocacy that helps abused and neglected children exit foster care to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.

Our volunteers’ main job is to provide the court with recommendations about where the children they represent should live on a permanent basis. Throughout the case, our volunteers maintain contact with everyone involved in the children’s lives, from foster parents, biological parents and therapists to Child Protective Services caseworkers and attorneys appointed by the court. They make sure the children are receiving the medical and psychological help they need, and they meet with teachers and principals to help the children thrive in school. They dry tears and give hugs and throw birthday parties, too. Most importantly, they serve as a 'constant' person for the children to count on during this tumultuous time. Essentially, our volunteers do whatever it takes to ensure that the needs of the children are being met while they are in care. To find out how you can become an advocate, click here.
