Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers provide tremendous mentoring, guidance and provide the justice system an unbiased perspective on the best option for children in difficult family situations. This organization does a great service to the community by training volunteers and linking them with children who deserve an advocate. CASA of Baltimore County has a dedicated staff that wants to provide this service to every child in need and your donation can help make that a reality.
As a Volunteer I am court-appointed to work with an adolescent girl who is in foster care. In developing a relationship with her while at the same time "working" with her DSS worker, foster parents, biological family and treatment foster care case manager, I'm able to make solid and appropriate recommendations to the Court regarding her well-being and future needs. I feel very honored to be volunteering with CASA of Baltimore County and feel that they provide me with the support and encouragement I need to be the best and most effective advocate I can.
CASA of Baltimore County teaches and supports volunteers who advocate for children who are removed from their homes because of abuse and/or neglect. It is truly rewarding to spend time with a child who really needs an extra pair of eyes to look after them.
Review from Guidestar
CASA recruits, screens, and trains volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children in the foster care system. The dedicated volunteers that work with the youth are able to form strong relationships that have a lasting impact on children who might otherwise not have a consistent caring adult in their lives. I have worked for CASA in two different states, and I truly believe this organization makes a difference!
