As a non-profit 501(c)3 child advocacy organization, we rely on our community for funding and support. In addition to recruiting, training and supporting the volunteers who are willing to become a CASA, we also have an ongoing need for volunteers to assist us with fundraising, outreach programs, special events and office tasks.
You can help us immensely by:
- becoming a financial donor
- offering pro-bono services or resources
- helping us at local events
- inviting us to speak to your civic/social organization or church to recruit CASAs
- encouraging elected officials and policy makers to enact laws that support children
- tell your co-workers and friends about our mission and/or nominate someone who you think would be an amazing CASA
