According to the PA Partnership for Children, 968 children in Berks County received foster care services in 2014. We need your support to recruit, train, and supervise community volunteer advocates to provide quality advocacy for abused, abandoned, and neglected children in court and throughout the child welfare system. Without a CASA volunteer, children often languish in foster care longer than they should, do not receive court-ordered services as recommended, do not preform as well in school, and are less likely to find a permanent home. The child welfare system could not afford to provide a comparable level of advocacy through non-volunteer approaches. In 2013, CASA volunteers around the country contributed 5.75 million advocacy hours, equivalent to $290 million in taxpayer dollars if compensated for their service. (National CASA data). There is a 75 to 1 return on investment. Federal funding for one staff supervisory position within a CASA program supports 30 trained volunteers, assigned to 75+ children's cases within a year. (National CASA data).
CASA of Berks County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A letter confirming your contribution will be sent to you upon receipt of your gift. Thank you in advance for your support.
