"As Mother’s Day approaches, we stop and say thank you to the mothers in our lives who poured so much love, care and hard work into raising us. But at CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), we know too many children do not have positive maternal figures in their lives."
"Foster parents are change agents for children in care.
Like CASA volunteers and staff, foster parents are working toward giving every child in foster care the opportunity to grow up in a safe, permanent, loving home."
What A CASA Volunteer Does
CASA volunteers are screened and highly trained and then appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child’s best interests in the child protection system. CASA volunteers are each assigned to help one child or set of siblings at a time, so they can focus on giving that child or sibling group the individualized advocacy and attention they need. CASA volunteers save taxpayers money and children’s futures by helping children find a safe, permanent homes as soon as possible.
