On April 14, 2016 over 70 CASA volunteers, board members, staff and their families attended the 13th Annual CASA Volunteer Appreciation Reception. We are grateful to our host, the Eastport Yacht Club, for catering a fabulous event. It was a wonderful evening of gratitude for our brilliant volunteers. Thank you again to everyone that came out and thank you again to all our volunteers; we wouldn't be successful without you! For more pictures from the event, visit the CASA Facebook page!
Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.
Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
