A CASA Volunteer Can Change Everything for Abused Children.
Too many children in the child welfare system are losing hope. These children have been abused and neglected, and now wait in a horribly overstretched foster care system; a system that is in crisis. More than 1,260 children in Johnson and Wyandotte Counties are living in foster care, up 13% from only one year ago. Shuffled from home to home, separated from siblings, frequent change of schools, lost friendships, few possessions, and no voice, these children need your help. The solution is simple and it begins with a single committed adult, a CASA volunteer.
CASA volunteers make a difference for children, one-on-one, by advocating for a clear path out of the system and into a safe, permanent home. A simple resolve with a very significant result. It's that simple - a qualified, caring adult can change everything.
