What does Tri-County CASA do? 

 

1. Tri-County CASA recruits and train volunteers serve as the eyes and ears of the court.  These volunteers:

  •  

    Facilitate a positive and reliable relationship with a young person in foster care and get to know the child’s life circumstances.

  •  

    Put together details from individuals who can provide knowledge of the child’s history – teachers, foster parents, family members, physicians, etc.

  •  

    Facilitate and form a plan and make age appropriate goals

  •  

    Make sure the young person gets the opportunity to receive needed medical, education, career, and housing services

  •  

    Be present at court proceedings (schedules vary) and make a knowledgeable proposal as to the best course of action to recommend to the judge what is in the young person’s best interests

  •  

    Foster a sense of expediency to the young person’s needs and actively encourage safety

  •  

    Support the need for permanent and stable environments for young people involved in juvenile court proceedings

  •  

    Stay actively engaged until the case is permanently resolved to keep the focus on the young person.

 

 

2. Have regular fund raisers through out the year to raise money for the accomplishment of the Tri-County CASA mission.

3. Work with various members of the Tri-County area community to aid young people in foster care to have productive and successful lives.

These children are precious human beings with feelings and needs. If you have a compassionate heart, have the time and resources, and champion the rights of innocents, CASA needs you now. These kids need you now. You can make a positive difference for a child. It requires discipline, commitment, and devotion to this worthy cause. Maybe you’ve been gifted with the ability to stand up for the rights of others. Perhaps you are a supporter for those who have been abused or come from broken homes. Whatever talents you have, they can help these kids live better lives. Volunteer to be an advocate for CASA today!
