Why Give to CASA?

By making a contribution to CASA, you are helping to provide a voice for a child who may feel as though they do not have one. With your help, we can continue to strengthen families and build better futures for children and youth in our community.

Your Impact

Did you know that youth who age out of foster care when they turn 18 are more likely to face risk factors such as becoming incarcerated, experiencing homelessness, and being unemployed? Those factors add up to future direct costs to the community of $300,000 to support each of these youth.

But having a stable adult like a CASA Volunteer in the life of a child in foster care can dramatically reduce those future risk factors.

Research has shown that children with a CASA Volunteer are more likely to find a safe, permanent home, more likely to succeed in school, and half as likely to re-enter the foster care system.

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the support of our community and donors like you to help provide court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children who have experienced abuse and neglect.

You can Change a Child’s StoryTM with a contribution to CASA.
