Dear CASA Volunteers, I am sure you remember from training and from your own experience as a CASA Volunteer how a little of your time can have a great impact on the life of a foster child.
- 8 year old Justin told his CASA he was glad to be in foster care in Newark instead of his previous placement in Antioch. He said she wouldn’t have been his CASA if he was still in Antioch. She assured him she would be his CASA no matter where he lived.
- 17 year old Amanda spoke at her probation graduation and thanked her CASA for helping her believe in herself and not be afraid to suceed.
Please join us on Wednesday January 25 from 6 to 9 PM for a special event for trained volunteers. You will be able to connect with other volunteers and share training and case experiences over a light dinner. Program staff will be available to share the files and describe the needs of children and youth on our priority wait list. Our hope is that you will enjoy spending time with other volunteers and consider commiting to one of our children and youth -- leaving with a New Year's Resolution to make a difference in 2017!
If that day doesn't work for you, but you're interested in learning more about children who critically need a CASA Volunteer, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 650-517-5844.
Hope to see you at this very special event!
