Change a Child's Story
“Being in foster care is living in a constant state of flux. Homes, schools, families….everything is in a constant state of flux, often suddenly and without warning. The only constant was my CASA volunteer. Without her I would have been lost in the system.” Melissa, Former Foster Youth
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. Get involved, and change a child’s story.
