Change a Child's Story

Since Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are appointed to one case, they can slow down and provide more time and consistency to the child. Research shows that having a stable relationship with a supportive adult can help children who have experienced trauma do well, even when they have faced significant hardships.

A child in foster care with a committed CASA volunteer is:

  • Half as likely to re-enter the foster care system
  • More likely to succeed in school
  • More likely to find a safe, permanent home
  • Less likely to enter the juvenile justice system
  • Less likely to have multiple foster placements
  • More likely to access services that promote healing

With over 400 children in foster care in Chatham County, the need for more CASA volunteers is significant. Too many children in the child welfare system lose their families, their rights, and their hope. With support from caring community members like you, we can ensure that every child who has experienced abuse or neglect has an advocate fighting for them.

Will you support our vision of a community where every abused or neglected child is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home? Will you become a Friend of CASA today?
