“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” – Edward Hale
CASA NEEDS YOUR HELP
DID YOU KNOW?
- Approximately 1,500 children/year in the greater Peoria area experience abuse or neglect, ushering them into the dependency court and foster care systems.
- A child in foster care, on average, will move into multiple homes and attend multiple schools.
- All this chaos and inconsistency has long-term effects.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Tenth Judicial is hosting a series of informational meetings in April to explain what it takes to be a CASA volunteer and how you can make an impact in your community. With each opportunity, we bring hope to families and come closer to bringing an end to child abuse and neglect.
Let April be the month you decide to help Change a Child’s Story.
Will you attend a commitment-free, informational meeting this month?
