"Portia's LoveHearts" a team to help the COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATE -CASA- PRINCE GEORGES COUNTY INC...
My experience as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) has definitely been one of the most impactful and rewarding experiences in my life. For me, being a CASA presented a shocking introduction to the plight of children as a whole, but more specifically those in the fostercare system. As much as my mind's eye would allow me to envision about what these children encounter, I can tell you that it is exponentially worse. We do not have to peer very far to find some child that is at risk, and in the foster care system due to no fault of their own. You might ask, "Who are these children?" They are babies, toddlers, teens, young adults, and students. They look like what you see in the mirror, and they bleed the same blood. They are capable of loving, showing kindness, and caring just as much any other person. They aspire to become doctors, lawyers, bus drivers, police officers, and government employees. Dear I say that I see these children in you and me. They are talented, bright, and just as capable of contributing positively to our society, given the right opportunities and circumstances.
CASA has functioned as a prosthetic arm of the family for many of these chlidren, bridging the gaps through direct support and advocacy, and contributing to necessary legislative changes for their betterment. Funding,however, is direly needed to continue this great work. Please join me in giving a voice to those who so desperately need it. No amount is too small, every dollar is appreciated, and you can rest assured that you are assisting these often forgotten children realize their true potential.
