Our volunteers offer support in all four of the Family Advocates programs; BabySteps, Parent Support Groups, Youth Enhancement Program, and, of course, CASA. All programs are desperately seeking volunteers and the children and parents we serve need your help. Who knows the good work we do better than you? You, our donor, volunteer, and community supporter, are poised to help the children who go unserved in CASA and YEP. You know the parents that need education and guidance from amazing volunteers in BabySteps and the Parent Support Groups. HELP!
It is devastating that we have to withdraw from 30% of the cases we are appointed to in CASA. Nothing is more frustrating than have 150 children show up to groups without the adequate people-power to offer them activities that their minds crave.
Our volunteer goals in 2017 are;
- 73 more Guardians ad Litem able to take 1 or more cases per year (about 10-15 hours per month)
- 20 volunteers in our youth programs (about 3 hours per week)
- 4 Parent Group Facilitators and 4 Parent Group Leads (about 2 hours per week)
Do you have a group we can speak to regarding this need? Bunco, Bible Study, Wine Club, Book Club, Lions, Rotary—we need to reach out to the community and tell them how one positive adult can alter the course of a child or family. Do you know a friend or family member that would be a good volunteer? Have them attend one of our volunteer orientations. And, to our current volunteers who put their heart, soul, blood, sweat, tears, and personal finances into these jobs….THANK YOU!
