For 30 years, Lone Star CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) has worked to provide our courts with the information needed to act in the best interests of abused and neglected children in Rockwall and Kaufman Counties, and to ensure that they’re placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.

The Lone Star CASA Team

Support for our wonderful volunteers and our community comes from our passionate and dedicated staff.

Rockwall Location:

Lauren Rowe

Executive Director

My name is Lauren Rowe and I am the Executive Director of Lone Star CASA. I have the privilege of overseeing the organization, raising awareness and increasing funding to provide the volunteers and staff the tools they need to ensure the kids we serve are taken care of and find a safe and healthy home. I started in November 2019 with the organization but have spent my career in non-profit, specifically organizations that served victims or children. I have truly enjoyed my time at CASA and getting to know all those that are passionate about this organization and the role we play in protecting abused and neglected children in our community. I am married to Brian and we have two young girls, London and Laurel. My favorite thing to do to relax is cooking in the kitchen. I love food and love preparing it.

Elizabeth Mosman

Program Manager

My name is Elizabeth Mosman and I am the Program Manager at Lone Star CASA. I have worked in child welfare for over 15 years and during this time I worked with child placing agencies and residential programs serving youth who have experienced abuse and/or neglect. I currently live in Rockwall with my husband and two daughters. Outside of the office, I enjoy being with my family watching our favorite sports teams, trying new restaurants, and spending time at the pool or the lake.

I previously worked as a Child Protective Investigator with the Department of Family and Protective Services and centered my legal studies around child abuse victimization, domestic violence concerns and avenues to reach at-risk communities in need of additional resources. During my down time, I teach my 2-year-old daughter about Dallas Cowboys fandom, and we sing melodies constantly (I did A Cappella Choir in high school and college). I also enjoy cooking numerous cuisines and taking road trips to see family in various parts of the country.
