Be for the child.
“Every child custody decision is important and can have a lifetime’s worth of impact on a child. CASA Volunteers are there to comfort the child, to calm their fears, while at the same time, shining a light for the court on the child’s best interests.” Honorable Amanda H. Sammons, Campbell County Juvenile Court Judge
Children in foster care who have a CASA volunteer are more likely to succeed in school and adjust to change. And they’re half as likely to re-enter the foster care system later. As a volunteer, you can make all the difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect in your community. Be for the child. Won't you please get involved today?

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.
It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. As we enter October and inch closer to the holiday season, year-end giving and volunteering also ramps up.
