Busy would be an understatement. They make dinner, entertain clients, drive carpool, walk the
dog, go to the gym, coach soccer, manage employees, take vacations and watch
television. Just like everybody else. What sets them apart is that, despite
their busy lives, they still make time to volunteer as advocates with our
program, making a direct impact on the lives of abused children.

capacity to serve at-risk children.
How will my donation make a difference?
Very simply, donations allow for the recruitment, training and constant management of nearly 80 CASA volunteers each year. So how does this help vulnerable children? Our volunteers will be assigned
to the most complicated cases of child abuse and neglect — serving a critical
role in ensuring that no child slips through the cracks of an overburdened
system. Our volunteers serve as the eyes and ears of the court, affording
judges, who will ultimately decide the permanent placement for a child, the
opportunity to make those decisions based on all the information. Maybe most
importantly, our volunteers will be a 'constant' in a child's life during this
most tumultuous and unstable time.
Who else supports CASA?
There isn't one specific demographic or organizational profile when
it comes to the many individuals, companies and private foundations that make it
possible for us to do what we do. They're people like you. Doctors, educators,
accountants, students, social workers, attorneys, stay-at-home parents and
retirees. People willing to commit their time, money and resources to provide
hope for our community's abused and neglected children. And they're companies
and organizations like yours. From the city's corporate giants to the
neighborhood churches and community groups, big and small companies alike
support our kids with their funds and resources.
