Hopeful Futures
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.
