Would you recommend CASA of Philadelphia County?
Imagine yourself as a child not having parents in the picture because they hurt you or made a grave error in judgment to have had authorities taken you away. Imagine bouncing foster home to foster home, school to school, and not knowing where you'll get you next meal from. Imagine meeting countless workers saying they're helping you but you may or may not see them more than 2-3 times before someone else comes along. And then you meet your CASA. A person who smiles and visits you no matter what. Someone who will never leave your side until you have permanency. Someone who sits next to you in court or just goes for you and tells the Judge what you want to say. Imagine that person going to school and advocating for your needs. No more bouncing. Your CASA is there to visit you monthly, get to know you, and speak up for what you need. Eventually, they're the only ones who know your history and light up when they talk about you. Every child deserves a voice. Even the abused/neglected.
