I am thankful to be a CASA advocate for two children who are wonderful human beings. These children, if given the opportunity, guidance and support, will be able to lead happy, safe and healthy lives. They deserve to be given a chance. Why would we not help them?

 
80s Fun Fact About Me: I loved the music of the 80’s and would listen to it on my record player while bouncing around on my bed.
 
 

 

CASA of Cook County’s amazing 300+ volunteers are doing even more for the children they serve—they are banding together to become a Giving Back to the Future Team and raising money to ensure CASA can serve every one of the 600+ children assigned to CASA today, and many thousands more in the future.

CASA volunteers are literally changing the future for children and youth in foster care. But one thing is missing—YOU! It costs CASA of Cook County $2,500 to serve a child for one year—versus the tens of thousands of dollars spent by the child welfare system. Those funds ensure CASA has the wrap-around staff to train and support volunteers so they can provide the very best trauma-informed, culturally relevant advocacy for a child.

I am grateful for every dollar donated to ensure children in foster care know that their lives and their futures truly do matter!
