and Stronger Communities
Children in foster care fare better with a CASA volunteer by their side. Studies have shown that they are:
- more likely to find a safe, permanent home
- more likely to succeed in school
- half as likely to re-enter the foster care system
There are over 400 children in foster care in Kings County, many of them need a volunteer advocate from CASA.
Addressing the Effects of Abuse, Neglect and Other Trauma
For many of the children we serve, their advocate will be the one constant in an otherwise chaotic life.
Research and Effectiveness
Results from CASA/GAL studies selected based on their high methodological quality
Hundreds of thousands of children have a volunteer by their side. Many more still need one.
