National CASA Association names Robert Culak to board of directors
Sugar Land resident Robert Culak, a retired CPA, has been elected to the Court Appointed Special Advocates board of directors.
He has served on the Child Advocates of Fort Bend board for 12 years, and is currently serving as treasurer.
“I applied to the board of trustees because I feel strongly about giving abused and neglected children the protection they deserve," Culak said. "If I can serve on the National Association and help in supporting advocates to protect these children, I feel that this is time well spent."
CAFB is a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing a voice for abused and neglected children in Fort Bend County. With more than 200 volunteers, the group serves more than 400 children each month through its CASA program and the Children’s Advocacy Center.
“Bob is a tremendous asset to our agency and I know that he will be invaluable to National CASA,” said Ruthanne Mefford, Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s executive director, in the release.
The National CASA Association is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Seattle that strengthens local CASA programs through assistance, consultation and training, quality assurance, volunteer recruitment and funding.
