CASA of Madison County is unfunded by State and Local Government. We rely solely on donations and grants. We are a 501C3 that needs funds Now to continue functioning. We were only able to serve 5 children last year. Please consider:
100% of the money you donate goes to sustaining YOUR LOCAL PROGRAM.
Substantiated Cases of Child Abuse, Neglect and Dependency in Madison County –
2014 – 366
2015 – 419
THIS YEAR’S PROJECTION – 550+!
That is a 50% increase in just two years.
Right now we only have one volunteer staff position, with your help we could raise enough funds for a full-time Executive Director to oversee this important program. Without a strong Board of Directors and an Executive Director we cannot train advocates to help the children in the county in out of home care.
We understand that not everyone can commit the time to serving on the Board of Directors or being an advocate, but that doesn’t meant you can’t help. Every donation, no matter how large or small, (in time, talents or tender) helps us continue to support and advocate for these children.
Please – make a secure donation below to help change a child’s life. Or call and get involved. Or both.
Any donation will get you a very big THANK YOU! (and a tax deduction)
Tens of thousands of children live in foster homes without a Court Appointed Special Advocate® (CASA). Imagine that child showing up to court and not knowing a soul. Worse yet, imagine how that child doesn’t know about court or how to defend himself while seeing complete strangers decide his future.
CASA volunteers know the children they serve, their story and unique circumstances and they have their best interests in mind. Having a CASA by a child’s side can be the difference between despair and hope. Your donation today helps the cost of CASA advocacy for a child by finding a safe, loving and permanent home for that child to live in.
