EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
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!
