Interested in helping a vulnerable child in our community? Not sure how you can? Come to CASA of Humboldt's OPEN HOUSE where staff will be available to answer questions, tell you about the organization and how you can give an irreplaceable gift to a local foster child, YOUR TIME! Most foster children's lives are filled with inconsistencies like new foster homes, schools, and a slew of strangers coming in and out of their lives.
At CASA we train volunteers to advocate for these children in court, assuring that they are placed in safe, nurturing homes where they can thrive. Unlike overloaded professionals, a CASA has time to become a consistent presence in the child's life. They speak for children who would otherwise have no voice, giving unconditional love and ensuring that each child receives the services they need to heal.
And the children appreciate it. One of our teenage CASA kids recently showed up at the workplace of her CASA with a bouquet of flowers and announced to the whole medical office how much she appreciated all that her CASA had done for her over the years. Another CASA child who is on the road to become adopted drew her CASA a beautiful picture and told her CASA that she hopes they can still remain friends after her adoption. One woman who had a CASA when she was child, told us that when she got her CASA at six years old, that was the first time in her life that she had experienced unconditional love. These kinds of stories are how we know this work is important and that your time really matters!
