CHANGE A CHILD'S STORY
Become a CASA Volunteer today to improve the well-being of abused and neglected children in your community.
CASA Partners 4NMKIDS supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every child in Sandoval and Valencia counties who has experienced abuse or neglect can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive.
CASA volunteers help children thrive as they grow. For many of the children we serve, their advocate will be the one constant in an otherwise chaotic life. A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to have better outcomes.
Children with a CASA tended to perform better academically and behaviorally in school as measured by whether or not they passed all of their courses, whether or not they were expelled, and their conduct performance.
Children and youth assigned a CASA volunteer reported significantly higher levels of hope. A child’s hope has been linked to numerous positive outcomes such as academic success, overall wellbeing, increases in self-control, positive social relationships and optimism.
