The Casey Cares Foundation provides uplifting programs to critically ill children and their families. Through our programs, we work to lighten the burden of planning an evening out or a weekend away for families that are overwhelmed with an illness in the family. With our Family Festivities Program, we give families a night out on the town, the Birthday Blast Program surprises children with a special gift on their birthday, our Celebration Vacation Program supports families by giving them a weekend away together, and our Better Together Program encourages families who have lost a child to continue participation in our programs an additional year.
The Casey Cares Foundation reaches out to critically ill children and their families by customizing uplifting and gratifying activities. It is the little pleasures in life that can make a big impact on families who must make everyday count.
I had the opportunity to intern at the Casey Cares Foundation during my final semester in college. I learned so much during my time here and most importantly I got to work alongside the amazing staff. The most exciting part of this experience was being able to positively impact the lives of critically ill children each day I was in the office. The work that is carried out by the staff at the Casey Cares Foundation is inspiring and I am so lucky to have had the chance to work next to such wonderful people.
It's a honor to volunteer for Casey Cares Foundation and help carry out the mission of providing ongoing and uplifting programs to critically ill children and their families. The staff at Casey Cares are always warm, inviting, and gracious. I would highly recommend potential volunteers to consider donating their time to Casey Cares Foundation.

I am currently an intern at the Casey Cares Foundation and have loved every minuter of it! From the first moment I walked through the door I could tell that the staff at Casey Cares is 100% committed to bringing a liitel bit of joy into these special children's life. I would encourage anyone who is looking to volunteer to do so with the Casy Cares Foundation.
As a Casey Cares volunteer for 8 years, I’ve seen the struggles parents face when their child is diagnosed with an illness. This organization gives them a way to deal with a very difficult journey. They provide amazing opportunities for the entire family and volunteering helps me feel a part of this process. The children are always their top priority.
Casey Cares is a great organization that helps children who are ill as well as their families. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available - from data entry and envelope stuffing work to helping with special fund-raising events. I'd definitely recommend volunteering with Casey Cares.
