Would you recommend Court Appointed Special Advocates for Foster Children (CASA)?
Through no fault of their own, far too many children in this community are faced with difficult family situations. Powerless to change the circumstances that led to D.F.S. involvement, children need adults to make good decisions about choices that impact their lives. When should children be removed, where should they live, with whom should they live, how long should they live there and can they return home - just to name a few of the decisions that are made everyday about children in protective custody. This is where CASA advocates can assist. CASA volunteers are that voice for the child. CASA volunteers research each case, monitor the case for progress, help identify resources and services for the child, and advocate in all venues to represent the child's best interest. CASA volunteers also voice the child's desire. If this sounds like a program you want to support or know about, please reach out or attend an orientation! There are so many amazing children who need our help.
This is most rewarding volunteer opportunity I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. If you want to make a real difference in lives of abused and neglected children that are suffering in the foster care system...this is the opportunity for you.
Do not hesitate or think that it's "too hard" or requires "too much time". The efforts you put into this change lives...period! There is no price tag for that. There is no higher priority than helping others and assisting when called upon. This organization needs your help and so do the children. Please...attend the informational meeting...it will definitely change your life!
