Be part of a better and brighter future for children
LANCASTER, PA (June 7, 2016) – Throughout 2015, over 700 Lancaster County children were in foster care. Children in foster care need a consistent, compassionate adult to give them their best chance in life. They need a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
Too many children in the child welfare system lose their families, their rights and their hope. You can help serve these children by advocating for them. You can help ensure abused and neglected children have their rights protected. These children can have a better and brighter future because of people like you.
Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.
CASA of Lancaster County is providing you an opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child who has suffered abuse and neglect. Please join us at one of our upcoming Community Awareness Sessions on Engagement (C.A.S.E.) for CASA.
- Tuesday, July 19, 12:00 PM – Grandview United Methodist, 888 Pleasure Road, Lancaster PA
- Tuesday, August 16, 6:00 PM – CASA, 53 N Duke St, STE 218, Lancaster PA
- Tuesday, September 20, 12:00 PM – Wheatland Presbyterian Church, 1125 Columbia Avenue, Lancaster PA
Come see audiovisual testimony from youth who have had an active child advocate in their lives during their time in foster care. As children, these young adults were positively affected by CASA. They will share the long-term impact of having a qualified, compassionate adult fight for and protect their rights. CASAs advocate for a child to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
C.A.S.E. for CASA is free of charge and open to the public. RSVP is required due to limited seating. We know how important your time is and our program will not exceed 60 minutes.
To reserve your seat, please contact CASA by calling (717) 208-3280 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. CASA of Lancaster County provides court appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children in the belief that every child deserves a safe, nurturing, and permanent home.
