CASA of the South Plains is excited to announce that its 50 in 50 recruitment campaign has come to a successful close. During the course of the campaign to recruit fifty new volunteer Advocates over fifty days, CASA experienced an outpouring of public interest in assisting the community’s foster youth. Forty-seven new volunteer Advocates will join CASA to speak up for the well-being of these most vulnerable children.
During the course of the campaign CASA offered no-obligation informational sessions, called CASA 101s that enabled the public to learn more about CASA’s mission and what it means to be an Advocate. CASA would like to extend its gratitude to the South Plains community for its commitment to aiding area foster youth.
“We are excited and deeply grateful for the tremendous response we have received from community members who want to make sure abused and neglected foster children have a voice that can speak for their best interest,” said Jennie Hill, Executive Director of CASA of the South Plains.
“We are thrilled by the level of community engagement we have received thus far; however, we know more Advocates are needed with 10 children entering foster care weekly in our area,” said Hill. “We are committed to ensuring every foster child has that voice and a committed Advocate.”
