Our Impact

 

Having a caring adult advocate for their best interest can make a lasting difference for a child who’s been neglected or abused.

 For many of the children we serve, their advocate will be the one constant in an otherwise chaotic life. 

Children with CASA volunteers report 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. 

Reaching Permanent Homes

Children with a CASA volunteer are more likely to find a safe, permanent home, and are:

  • More likely to be adopted

  • Half as likely to re-enter foster care

  • Substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care

  • More likely to have a plan for permanency

Enabling Children’s Well-Being Over Time

CASA volunteers help children thrive as they grow. 

Children with CASA volunteers get more help while in the system:

  • More services are ordered for the children

  • Volunteers spend significantly more time with the child than a paid guardian ad litem.
