I was truly thankful that the CASA Council was in place and able to help the children. The town where they have been placed does not have a girls/boys club and there is no place for outside activity which they all seem to want and need. The Council was able to purchase a basketball hoop and two ball for the children. I'm not sure how much they will be used at 115 degrees but at least the set up is available. As an aside, on of the Council members actually donated another basketball unit. They are great people who really care for our children. Melinda Sobraske

The Mohave County CASA Council has been instrumental in supplying funds for children in foster care. Children, particularly foster children, have needs to feel special and to feel loved. The CASA Council is very diligent in making their dreams come true! The CASA Council is very approachable and a pleasure to work with.

I have been a Mohave County CASA for several years. I truly appreciate the work done by the Mohave County CASA Council. They raise money to provide the "extras" for the children that makes them feel "normal" in a time of need. Not only do they work hard to put a smile on each of the kids faces at Christmas, they also make sure that the children are not forgotten throughout the rest of the year. Because it is not unusual for children to carry their most precious and personal belongings in a garbage bag when they leave their homes, the CASA Council works hard to provide the children with suitcases. The CASA Council provides funding for all of the extras that are so often forgotten (from suitcases to camp to prom) but mean so much in the lives of these children. The Mohave CASA Council is very easy to work with and very responsive to the needs of each of the children.

I have gone to the CASAsuppport.org website to apply for funding for the unmet needs of foster children in Mohave County. Whether a person is an advocate, foster parent or DCS caseworker, this is the site to go where 100% of the funding raised goes to support the kids. I especially appreciate the swim lessons which make kids a little safer around water. Children in the care of the State deserve opportunities and the special help this non-profit gives them.

As a case manager I have had the pleasure of working with the CASA council on numerous occasions. The CASA council has assisted many children in our community with individual needs as well as reaching out to all foster children in Mohave county, though events such as the fall festival and Christmas celebration. The council collaborates with local agencies and providers to ensure our community's foster children never believe that they are invisible.
This non-profit organization is vital to the foster children in the community during a time of change and difficulty in their lives.

I worked with a family and the CASA to get them a much needed double stroller. The CASA member made it very easy and told us step by step what to do. The form was easy to fill out and the family recieved the funds to get the stroller very quickly. It was very esay to do and very helpful for the family.

I never had trouble with asking CASA in assisting our children in Mohave County. They have assist our children in their needs that we could not provide on the spot. Some of our youth got additional funds to assist them in graduation and prom, which is a big for youths getting ready to transition to adulthood. It helps the youths to celebrate a milestone than worry how to earn the money to get the necessary to celebrate their accomplishment.

Thanks to the Mohave County CASA council on funding kids from our Agency. The CASA council is always quick to get back and has funded all reasonable requests that I have made. We are grateful as an Agency and I am grateful as a former case manager and now supervisor of this support for the children and families that we serve.

I am a case manager for the department of child safety. I have worked with several of the Casa's assigned to Lake Havasu. Each and everyone of them have served my children above and beyond what is required of them per their volunteer job description. I have relied on the Casa's to make suprise visits at visits, placements, and schools when I had concerns and needed a second opinion. They have provided outings for my children that the children would have otherwise not experianced. The Casa's have provided my children with grants and resources when they were in need of clothing or equipment or fees for activitivities.
The Casa's have also worked with our parents helping them with resources and giving advice when the parent has asked them.
The Casa's have always been freindly and professional. They represent the children well in court.
