Children In Our Community Need You
Over 500,000 children in the United States enter the juvenile court system every year because their home environments are unsafe. In 2016, there were over 600 abuse/neglect cases in the Delaware County Juvenile Court. The Delaware County CASA Program was appointed to all those children, but only 214 children had their own dedicated CASA Volunteer. Currently, there are over 400 children waiting for a volunteer to guide them through the juvenile court system and advocate for their best interests in court. Our next training to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) begins on September 26. It’s simple – Apply, Train, Volunteer.
In addition to becoming a CASA, we need volunteer Ambassadors to bring in more volunteers and to support the work they do. If you want to work behind the scenes to support the mission of CASA we need Advisory Board Members with talents in program development, marketing, fund-raising, or grant writing to increase our capacity to serve the children waiting for a CASA. Your Donation, whether small, medium, or large, will be put to good use, immediately. Choose Help Wanted above to find out more.
