CASA Creating Brighter Futures for Lancaster County Children
LANCASTER, PA (September 14th, 2018) - Every child should live free from harm, but in Pennsylvania alone, 46 children died and 79 nearly died in 2016 from abuse and neglect. Of those 125 children, nearly half of their families were already in the child-welfare system. By providing a volunteer advocate for children who have suffered abuse or neglect, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County aims to increase each child’s safety and security.
CASAs ensure that foster children have access to services and supports they need in a timely manner, making sure their basic rights don’t get overlooked or ignored by an overburdened foster care system. This level of care and support simply cannot be achieved without the help of the broader community, people like you! Join us for an information session to learn how you can become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children for generations to come:
• Thursday, October 4, 12:00 pm at Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster, 538 W. Chestnut Street, Lancaster
• Wednesday, November 14, 6:00 pm at CASA, 53 North Duke Street, Suite 218, Lancaster
• Tuesday, December 18, 12:00 pm at Paul Davis Restoration, Lancaster
