While the temperature is hovering near 100 degrees, Fred & Mabel R. Parks Foundation, Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) staff, committee members, decorators and homeowners are gearing up for the 24th annual CASA Christmas Home Tour, scheduled for Friday, December 11th and Saturday, December 12th. “Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation has a long-standing relationship with this agency and with our Home Tour. We are so excited that they came forward to kick off the sponsor drive again this year as our Event Underwriter,” said Ruthanne Mefford, Child Advocates of Fort Bend Chief Executive Officer.

Proceeds from the Christmas Home Tour help CAFB advocate for the needs of abused and neglected children in the community. Through its two programs, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), the agency touches the lives of more than 400 young victims each month.

A Fort Bend holiday tradition, the tour offers guests the opportunity to view beautifully decorated homes in Fort Bend County while helping to raise much needed funds to support CAFB’s programs serving abused and neglected children. Tour hours are 10 am until 4 pm on December 11th and 12th with a candlelight tour on December 11th  from 6 until 9 pm.

Sponsors and volunteers are needed to support the Home Tour. For more information, call Lisa Moore at 281-344-5108 or emaI Visit for information on home locations and ticket sales.
