Sponsor Grand Night

 

October 21, 2014

Dear CASA Supporter,

For an abused or neglected child, a CASA volunteer is someone who listens. Someone who fights for that child, reaching out to teachers, social workers, parents, lawyers, caregivers and anyone else who can meet that child’s needs. Someone whose sole mission is to help clear a path out of the complex, overburdened child welfare system and into a safe, permanent home.

We know that the CASA model works. Research shows that a child with a CASA volunteer is half as likely to spend time in long-term foster care as one without a volunteer. Once that child leaves the system, he or she is much more likely to stay out of foster care permanently.

Training these volunteers, supporting our full time staff of three, and having ample supplies require money. The county supports CASA each year. The remaining budget comes from donations, fundraisers and grants.

Behind every CASA volunteer who lifts up the voice and life of an abused or neglected child stands a generous donor like you. Our major fundraiser is A Grand Night for CASA.

 

Individual tickets are $75 and may be purchased at the CASA office. You may also make donations or purchase tickets online at our website at www.carrollcasa.org.

Hope is Here

We currently have 105 kids being served by 50 CASA volunteers. There are still 18 children that need trained advocates to speak up for them in court. Each year, Carroll County Department of Family and Children’s Services receives over 1,100 reports of abuse and neglect in our community. Could you stand up for an abused or neglected child?

Carroll County CASA

 
 
Concerned over making decisions about abused and neglected children's lives without sufficient information, a Seattle judge conceived the idea of using trained community volunteers to speak for the best interests of these children in court. So successful was this Seattle program that soon judges across the country began utilizing citizen advocates.
 
In 1990, the U.S. Congress encouraged the expansion of CASA with passage of the Victims of Child Abuse Act. Today more than 900 CASA programs are in operation, with 62,000 women and men serving as CASA volunteers. CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocate. The mission of Carroll County CASA, Inc. is to provide carefully screened, trained and supervised volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in juvenile court until a safe, permanent home is assured.
