Imagine a child that you know and love is in a bad situation. Maybe there are drugs involved. Perhaps abuse. Then they are in foster care.
Imagine that child being with strangers. Perhaps in a new school. It doesn’t matter that home is scary. It is all they know. They just want home. They want their stuff, their friends. They do not know what happens in their home doesn’t happen in other homes. It is all they have known.
What if someone stepped up to say “My name is …. I’m going to help you through this.”? What if that someone was you?
Let us tell you more. Please. Children are waiting.If only all children never faced darkness in life.If only all children were always protected.If only …We could go on and on. But those “ifs” don’t change anything. Caring adults do! Someone to step up and ask “How may I help?”.As of 10/20/21, there are 131 children are waiting for someone to advocate for them.We will answer all of your questions, train, coach, and guide as you advocate for a child. You are not alone. Case supervisors will assist you.Please don’t wait another day. ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE children are waiting TODAY for their caring adult.
When a child is removed from their home because of abuse and neglect, they are suddenly in a world of strangers. Foster children need a caring adult that will be their advocate through this time in their lives. An advocate will be the consistent adult in their lives during their time in foster care. We would love to tell you more about it.
CASA volunteers stay by a child’s side throughout the case, advocating first for reunification when safe and possible.
