Today is the last day of Hire Up Staffing’s 12 Days of Giving and we chose an amazing charity to support. Court Appointed Special Advocates, better known as CASA works to service the courts while making a real difference in the lives of foster children in Fresno & Madera.
In both counties, more than 2,000 children wait in foster care for a lasting home. For these young survivors of chaos, the foster care system alone just isn’t enough. They need more personalized attention than county agencies can provide. CASA helps fill that need.
Studies show that children with CASA volunteers spend much less time in foster care. That matters, because children settled in stable homes are more likely to finish school and become self-sufficient, healthy adults. Many foster children, however, will never be reunified with family or placed in adoptive homes. They need our help to ensure the best possible transition from foster care to independent adulthood.
CASA currently serves about 175 children daily, but even more are waiting. CASA is so effective that the courts have requested more trained advocates to serve an additional 200 children per day. With community help, we’ll meet that challenge.
The Hire Up Staffing elves went online at our office today and donated $100 to the cause. The site is set up to accept donations by the simple click of a button. Click here to donate now https://www.casafresnomadera.org/casa-donation/
