Season's Greetings! The holidays should be a time to
make happy memories with family. But they can be a very difficult
time of year for over 1,700 CHILDREN before the abuse and neglect
court in the Tenth Judicial Circuit. Many of these children have been
removed from their homes and placed in foster care. They're attending
court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to
new schools. That is a heavy burden for a child to carry alone,
especially during the holidays.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a
caring, consistent adult for a child who's experiencing the
loneliness and uncertainty of foster care this holiday season.
Children with a dedicated volunteer by their side have someone who
will speak up for their best interests in the courtroom and the
community, and help them find the road home, wherever it lies. CASA
volunteers make sure that every child has the opportunity to heal and
thrive. 180 volunteers are showing the Tenth Judicial Circuit's most
vulnerable children that they are special and that there is hope for
a brighter future.
Your generous support makes our work on behalf of these
children possible. Please help us reach more children by making a
gift today or volunteering.
