According to Beth,

Alice shouldn’t like hanging out with me. Eighteen now, she has been in foster care since she was one and has averaged moving to a new home every year. She’s had many adults in her life let her down. When we first started hanging out, she was quiet and we had long moments of silence. She never made waves but never got attached.

She won’t lose me, though, and she is showing signs of knowing that. She tells me “olive juice,” which I’ve learned means I love you. I’m not special. I believe she would develop this sort of relationship with any adult who listens to her, praises her, reaches out to her, consistently shows up, plans for her, and only after many months of developing trust, gives advice to her. It took time to work up to this point, but she is so worth it.

We are so grateful for the overwhelming response to the I&G Charitable Foundation's matching grant - we met our goal and will receive the full $50,000 match! In response, long-time supporters Heather Hughes and John Botti offered to match all additional gifts made by December 31st, up to $30,000, doubling the impact of your gift.

Join the team or donate towards one of the team members above. With your support, we will be able to recruit, train, match and support 30 additional CASA volunteers.

After a comprehensive 40-hour training, and formal appointment by the Court, each volunteer CASA is paired with a foster child to:

  • Advocate for safe, permanent, and nurturing homes
  • Address their educational, healthcare, and other urgent needs
  • Insist that those making decisions impacting a youth have a complete picture of his/her current situation, needs and interests
  • Help them to develop permanent connections in the community.
