THE STORY:

Did you know there are more than 1,000 children living in foster care in Atlantic and Cape May Counties? Seven hundred of these children are still waiting for a CASA volunteer. CASA volunteers advocate for these children in court, so that they are placed in safe, permanent homes with a forever family.

Many of these children grew up in the system. Others were old enough to remember being taken away from their abusive and neglectful parents. A lot of these children have been separated from their siblings. Too many are struggling in school because they may get placed in a new foster home several times a year. CASA volunteers help resolve these issues and provide a trusted adult and advocate for children living in foster care.

Join CASA in supporting children in need. All proceeds will help us provide a CASA volunteer to foster children in our community. Did you know it costs more than $1,000 a year to train one volunteer? Our goal this year is to train 100 new volunteers, so that we can provide a CASA volunteer to 400 foster children. Please help us make a better reality for local children living in foster care!  

In addition, the Kids Fit Final Mile is a one-mile fun run that benefits CASA during the Atlantic City Marathon race weekend. More information below on how to sign up!
