HOURS PLEDGED: 200
Hello friends, thank you for visiting my fundraising page. For those of you who may not know me, my name is Cesar Chavez and I am running my first marathon. Please help me to raise money for Hudson County Court Appointed Special Advocates, Inc. (CASA), an independent, non-profit organization committed to advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children. CASA works through trained community volunteers to ensure that needed services are available to foster children while helping to move them toward safe and permanent homes
I have been involved with Hudson County CASA for about 4 and a half years as both a volunteer and a Board Member. As a volunteer my first case was working with a 9 year old boy who was removed from his mother's care due to her mental illness. Currently I am working with a family who was split up due to abuse and neglect.
Working with the state system and the courts all the great volunteers at Hudson County CASA are making sure that our children in foster care get the help and care they need. This past year Hudson County CASA served 184 children, 45 of them found permanent homes. Our goal for next year is to help almost 200 foster children. With your help, we will be that much closer to achieving our goal!
