Dear CASA Supporter
This fall you have undoubtedly read emails and social media posts from our program noting the dramatic rise in the number of children needing CASA volunteers in Lake County. A great many factors contribute to a removal of a child from their home. The end result however, is a child whose essential developmental years are lost as they struggle with the uncertainty and chaos of the foster care system. Despite the challenge of growing wait lists, we are determined to find a CASA volunteer for every child experiencing this tragic reality, but we need your help to do it.
On October 8th, the Illinois CASA Organization launched an important marketing campaign to help us all align the needs of recruitment, funding and bringing more people together to serve our kids in foster care. Please help us to share these messages with your friends, family, and coworkers. Every new volunteer means that a child won’t have to face foster care alone.
Please contact me at 847-383-6260 to learn more about CASA and what you can do to change a child’s story.
