Our Challenge: An Overburdened System
20,000 children will find themselves in foster care this year.
On average, a child will spend nearly a year in foster care.
Each child will change homes an average of five times.
Our Solution: Citizen Volunteers
One year of CASA advocacy costs less than one month of foster care!
Our Results: A Brighter Future
A child with a CASA volunteer is twice as likely to find a safe, permanent home.
A child with a CASA volunteer is half as likely to re-enter the foster-care system.
And, they are more likely to succeed in school and less likely to spend three or more years in care.
