Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Amarillo CASA is looking for volunteer advocates! CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate and we are a nationwide organization. We are the voice of children who have been abused and neglected-We speak for the voiceless, the broken, the hurting.
A CASA volunteer visits the children in their foster home or relative’s home, advocates for their needs, and ensures they are never overlooked by an overburdened foster care system. A CASA is often the most stable person in a foster child's life. A CASA can be a friend, mentor, supporter, and encourager to a child in need. The children that we serve are YOUR children. They are from your county, your town.
