    It is in a child’s best interests to remain with their family of origin when safely possible. National Kinship Care Month is observed in September to celebrate grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives who open their homes for children and youth when their parents are unable to care for them. CASA/GAL volunteers identify and recommend services to support kinship care families.  tap here to Learn how you can help a child in foster care.

    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.   tap here to Watch a short video on child advocacy

    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.  tap here to Learn how you can help.

    Many in our community do not know who we are or what a court-appointed special advocate does. If you need a speaker for a meeting or event, PLEASE CONTACT US.

     

CASA volunteers stay by a child’s side throughout the case, advocating first for reunification when safe and possible.
