    We have an immediate need for volunteer advocates! Advocates visit foster children at their placement monthly, assess their safety and needs and then report to court! CASA will train you, guide you and support you. The schedule is flexible and many of our volunteers are employed full time. Over 100 children are waiting for a volunteer to help them through their journey in foster care. Do you want to make a life-changing difference in the life of a child? Contact us TODAY to join our June class.

    • The hardest part isn’t saying goodbye to a child you’ve championed through their time in foster care.
    • It isn’t speaking up for their needs in court.
    • It isn’t working together with social workers and family members toward a common goal.
    • It isn’t learning how to advocate for a child and help them navigate the system.
    • The hardest part is deciding to make a difference.

    One voice. A child’s voice. They should be laughing, joking, and giggling. They are silenced by abuse, neglect, and an unknown home. Who will be their voice for this child in matters that affect the rest of their lives?

    One voice. Your voice. You can speak for a child. You can change a child’s story.

    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.

We envision a community where every child who has experienced abuse or neglect is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving environment.
