Every child deserves a voice. Every Child.

 

Alyssa’s Story

Alyssa was moved into foster care in Central Virginia when she was 3 years old. After 4 placements, her CASA helped her find a voice and a safe, loving and permanent home.

What is a CASA

CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocate. A judge will appoint a CASA to a child or children on a case that is before the court. CASA learns about the situation, observes and recommends, but most importantly the CASA knows the child and advocates for what is best for that child.

A voice for children

Last year CASA Volunteers helped 310 children in our area. Some children know the trauma of abuse and neglect too well. But many of them can count on a CASA Volunteer to speak up for what is best for them. Always. Because the CASA Volunteer is for the child.

What your gift can do

At CASA our volunteers are the real superheroes. They make a profound impact on the lives of children that need them. Your gift will contribute to recruiting, training and supporting these volunteers. There are currently children waiting for the support of a CASA. Together we can end the waitlist for a CASA Volunteer.

The Numbers

Last year CASA served 310 children in our community. Almost 40% of these children were under 5 years of age and close to 70% were younger than 12. 93 CASAs logged more than 81,000 miles serving children who need them. There are currently around 60 children waiting for a CASA.

You can help.

Your gift to CASA of Central Virginia can be used to train and recruit volunteer advocates. With a large gap to fill, there are children waiting for a CASA in our community right now. Together we can help put an end to our waitlist and serve every single child that needs a CASA Volunteer.
