The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) trains members of the community to advocate in court for neglected and abused children. Children who are in foster care and are going through family court often don't have a voice. A CASA volunteer is someone who can give that child a voice. Someone who forms a direct relationship with the child. Someone who will visit that child in their home every month. Someone who will make sure their needs are addressed. You don't need any special training. We will train you. You just need to care about our most vulnerable citizens. If you have questions, or would like an application, please contact us via email, or call 267-519-5326. Please leave your email address with us if you call.
