Thanks to you 1,300 children and youth in LA County’s child welfare system will have a caring adult this year who advocated for and supported their needs in the areas of education, healthcare and housing. On behalf of these children, thank you for giving them hope and the opportunity to thrive.
As we approach the end of our 2019 fiscal year at CASA of Los Angeles, and another significant year of service to the children of our community, we are grateful. We depend on the generosity of individuals such as yourself to do this work. Because of you, we were able to serve more children than ever before this year.
Through CASA advocacy, children in foster care meet more of their education goals. They experience lower degrees of risk around their mental health, medical wellbeing and safety. They achieve higher rates of permanency.
But most importantly, every child served by CASA/LA is connecting with a stable adult who is helping them without ever being paid.
When CASA/LA pairs a responsible, caring, and trained adult with a child in need, it makes a difference. It isn’t just about supporting a child today, but about changing their trajectory to support the adult they will become tomorrow.
Despite the increase in the number of children we serve, we still have 284 children who are waiting to be paired with a CASA volunteer. These children were referred to CASA/LA by the children’s court, and have been assessed and determined to be in urgent need of a CASA volunteer.
Each of these children can benefit from the advocacy of a CASA volunteer so they can have the same opportunities that all children deserve. Through your support, you can impact the life of that child today.
Our goal, before June 30, 2019 is to raise an additional $100,000 so we can take as many kids off the wait list as possible.
we need your help to make it happen. Would you be able to make a donation of $50, $100 or any amount to help us meet our goal to serve the 284 children on our waiting list?
We simply can’t do it without you. You are critical to this work. It’s your passion and generosity that fuel our work, and you are with us everywhere we go.
