Subject: Join me in speaking up for foster children
Dear Friends and Family,
Each person can make a difference in the life of a foster child. That’s why I [volunteer with, support] Voices for Children and why I’m asking you to consider becoming a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
Voices for Children is a nonprofit organization right here in our community dedicated to helping make a difference in the lives of foster children by providing them with a CASA. More than 5,100 children live in foster care in San Diego County each year. These children have been abused, abandoned, and neglected, and many of them feel very much alone…until they meet their CASA. There is no experience necessary to be a CASA volunteer; Voices for Children provides all the training you will need and a VFC staff member, who will work with you on your case.
By becoming an advocate for foster youth, you will help provide a voice to children in the courtroom, classroom, and community to ensure that their needs are met. Ninety percent of foster children with a CASA do not re-enter the child welfare system, and they tend to receive needed services sooner and more consistently. CASAs are often the only consistent adult presence in a child’s life and they provide critical stability and support that can transform a child’s future. Don’t miss the opportunity to be that person for a foster child.
Please join me in speaking up for foster children! You can visit the Voices for Children website at www.speakupnow.org to learn more or to register for a volunteer information session.
