Imagine being taken away from everything that is familiar to you -your parents, your siblings, your home- not because of something you have done, but because your parents cannot or will not take care of you.
Over 200 children are victims of child abuse and neglect in the Historic Triangle each year and half of these children are under the age of 7. Each day they face uncertainty and trauma, their lives a sea of ever-changing professionals who –although well-meaning- are nonetheless strangers; police, social workers, foster parents, therapists, judges, lawyers and many others.
This is where CASA steps in. For more than 100 of these children each year, there is one person consistently there for them, one person whose reassuring presence and focus does not change: their volunteer CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate).
Nothing touches our hearts more than helping a child, and helping a child who has been abused or neglected will affect you in ways you would never expect. Volunteer or donate today.
