CASA of Berks County

Image_202109160651

CASA of Berks County is entering its 6th year of operation. It has a vibrant board of directors and a strong, experienced Executive Director. We are in year two of a three-year strategic growth plan. We are funded with a combination of federal, state, community foundations and individual donations. The federal contract requires diligent record-keeping and reporting. Our current treasurer needed to resign for family medical reasons and it is urgent we find a skilled professional to replace him. We have outsourced bookkeeping to a national accounting firm and the Executive Director is skilled and competent in preparing financial reports for our funders. The board treasurer's role is to be aware of our financial requirements and legal requirements, check that these are completed in a timely fashion, and report on this to the board. The board treasurer also oversees the development of the annual budget, reviews monthly financial statements, and reports to the board the agency's status. Additional duties include checking that annual audits occur, adequate insurance is in place, and assessing risks of financial opportunities (ex: last year's PPP loans).
Must live or work in Berks County Pennsylvania
Must agree to background clearance: criminal, child abuse, social security/citizenship
Prefer someone who is invested in addressing child abuse and neglect.

Mission Statement

The mission of CASA of Berks County is to provide a competent, responsible, and compassionate court-appointed community volunteer to advocate for each child who faces abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment; our goal, to restore their well-being and ensure the eminent right to a safe, nurturing, and permanent home.

Description

Founded in 2015, CASA of Berks County recruits, trains, and supports over 50 citizen volunteers to be Court Appointed Special Advocates. As volunteer court advocates they are assigned a child or children who have been abused and/or neglected. The court advocates meet at least monthly with the child, talk with foster and bio parents, talk with doctors, therapists, and schools, and regularly communicate with the team at Berks County Children & Youth and the Guardian Ad Litem in Berks Courts. The goal is to be the eyes and ears of the judge, reporting back to the judge the child's living conditions, success and participation in court ordered programs like therapy, school, medical exams, dental, etc. In the past year our 50 volunteers advocated for 107 children and attended over 317 court hearings.
