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 300 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 March 28.
Consider interviewing with us to find out how you can help. In addition to becoming a CASA, we need volunteer Ambassadors to bring in more volunteers and to support the work they do. We are also seeking Advisory Board Members with talents in 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.
