I have served as the Executive Director of CASA of Brown County since 2017 and know firsthand the difference CASA volunteers make in the lives of children who have experienced the trauma of abuse and neglect.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. That's why I became a CASA Champion and created a fundraiser to support Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Brown County!
CASA of Brown County recruits, trains, and supports citizen volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children under court protection until they are safe and thriving in permanent homes.
CASA volunteers build special relationships with children under court protection and advocate exclusively on their behalf in monthly reports to the judge. These reports help the judge make important decisions about each child’s future.
A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to get help with other services, spend less time in foster care, find a safe, permanent home, and do better in school. Last year alone, 133 CASA volunteers advocated for 232 children in Brown County, making their lives safer and their futures brighter!
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach my goal of $500. With your help, we will reach even more children who need an advocate during an extremely challenging and chaotic time in their lives.
Thank you for joining me and being a CASA Champion!
