BENEFITING: HUDSON COUNTY COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES
EVENT DATE: Dec 06, 2014
Hudson County CASA is an amazing organiziation that is primarly supported by volunteers. Each volunteer is assigned to a family that has entered "the system," which means that one or more children have been removed from their home and are placed in a temporary placement, whether that is with another family member, a foster home, or a group home. My role as a volunteer is to help the children as they progress through a system that is difficult to navigate and over-burdened, and act as an advocate for the best interest of each child, whatever that may look like for each individual.
I have pledged a minimum of one year of my time helping a family as they make there way through a system that can be overwhelming and scary. Please donate as much or as little as you want and I can promise it will go to a great organization that is doing so much for our community. My goal is to raise $50 for every half mile I run in the Rehoboth Beach Half Marathon on December 6.
