Description: CASA provides services to and for abused and neglected children who are at risk of being placed in foster care. CASA volunteers offer children trust and advocacy during complex legal proceedings. Mission: CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) speaks for children in court because all children have a right to live in a safe, healthy, and secure environment.placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.
My personal message:
The Kid Walk is an annual event put on by CASA. Teams compete to see who can raise the most money between now and the Kid Walk on October 10th. My goal is to raise $200 dollars--or more!
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) recruits, trains, and supports community volunteers who are advocating for abused and neglected children. When children are removed from their homes by Child Welfare Services due to abuse or neglect, they become part of an overburdened system. Lawyers, social workers, and foster parents have serveral cases and kids competing for their time and attention. A CASA gets to focus on just one child.
If you don't have the time to be a CASA, the second best thing you can do is donate. Make it possible for others to become CASAs. Only 2 in 4 children who need a CASA get a CASA. Help expand the training schedule, grow the advocate support system, and increase the volunteer advocate pool. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. No bake sales, no candle orders, no raffle tickets. It is the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Donate at: http://www.firstgiving.com/pamiorg1.
