Welcome to the CASA Christmas Challenge!
The holiday season is finally here! For most children, it means school vacation, winter parties, Santa lists, sugar cookies and snowflakes. For most families, it means shopping for the perfect gift for loved ones, big family meals, festive decorations and making memories.
Unfortunately, this isn't the case for the children we serve, our foster children. This time of year can be a painful reminder that they have been removed from their homes and placed in foster care because the very people that were supposed to care for them did not.
However, the children we serve have a BIG reason to celebrate. They have a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer that will listen to them, speak for them and champion without compromise for what is in their best interests. The children that have CASA volunteers will spend half as much time in foster care and are more likely to have a safe permanent home.
We rely heavily on donations from concerned citizens (that means you!) and businesses to help defray the cost of advocating for Douglas County children as well as the cost of operation.
Our amazing Board of Directors is dedicated to improving the futures for children in our community. Our mission means so much to us that we have accepted the 4th Annual CASA Christmas Challenge reach out to our friends and family and raise $500 each between November 30th and December 31st.
Please consider making a year-end, tax deductible donation to help the most vulnerable members of our community, our children in foster care.
