Transporting your casa kid?

CASA is happy to provide you with car seats to transport your CASA children safely. We have several available on a first come, first serve basis. We simply ask that you:

  1. Check them out appropriately. Your CASA Supervisor can help you with this simple process.
  2. Read the instruction manual for your vehicle to determine where to best install the car seat. Visit our Travel and Transport page to learn more.
  3. Read the car seat manual to ensure you can install it correctly.
  4. When in doubt, ASK! Our CASA staff will be thrilled to help you install the car seat.

Our Travel and Transport page provides the installation instructions and some helpful videos created by the car seat manufacturers. You could also visit csftl.org to learn more about safe car seat installation. Our children are precious gifts, and we thank you for taking the time to learn how to transport them safely. For more information about Car Seat laws in the state of Texas, click HERE.

Not sure which car seats your kids need to ride safely? Talk with your CASA Supervisor. We will make sure you have what you need.
