CASA Cares: Partnering with Peaceable Kingdom

Variety's Peaceable Kingdom opens its doors to CASA of Coryell and Bell Counties

KILLEEN, Texas — CASA of Coryell and Bell Counties always looks for a way to provide the most for the children they serve.

Variety's Peaceable Kingdom is giving them an outlet to do more for their advocates, foster children and hopefully the biological parents.

The charitable organization serves over seven-thousand children of all abilities and all backgrounds on 122 acres of land in Killeen, offering them a space to live a way they wouldn't have otherwise been able to.

"Peaceable Kingdom is where we serve kids with special needs from across Bell County and the State of Texas," Stacy Bruce, the president of Variety, said.

There's a playground for children with disabilities. Children in wheel chairs and those who can't see can enjoy the splendors of what every child gets from life.

Peaceable Kingdom also has a mini golf course that allows kids who are blind to take part in the sport.

They even have a huge theatre that accommodate children that might have ADHD or ADD.

The list goes on and on for what is offered at Peaceable Kingdom.

That's why, Chistene Yacynych, an advocate with CASA, said she feels this is the perfect place to send her advocates and their children.

"When I think about all the kids that CASA serves and the needs they have and how greatly this could benefit them, I'm overwhelmed with ideas," Yacynych said.

She added that many children in the foster system are special needs or have disabilities themselves. Many of the children who become part of CASA are as well.

So opening the doors of Peaceable Kingdom will create new opportunities for the children, their advocates and hopefully their biological families.
