WHAT IS A CASA? A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a volunteer who wants to dedicate between 10-12 hours
a month to help children who have experienced abuse or neglect: One caring adult, assigned to the same child, while they’re in the foster care system even if caregivers, schools, and other situations change. CASA volunteers work together with a child’s family of origin, foster family, social workers, attorneys, and CASA staff to build a long-term support network. They help kids plan for a future that’s brighter than their past.

For more information email our recruiter Shay at [email protected] or https://casaofalamedacounty.org/becoming-a-volunteer/

Holiday/Hope

Many families are looking forward to gathering this holiday season after so much time apart. Imagine what it is like for children who were removed from their homes and placed in foster care in the last few months – A CASA volunteer can help.

Sadly, thousands of children who have experienced abuse or neglect will be separated from their families during the holidays. A CASA volunteer is key support during this challenging time. Give a gift of hope today.

A CASA volunteer can provide a sense of hope as a consistent presence in the child’s life, especially during this holiday season. Give a gift today.

Welcome Winter! The winter solstice for the Northern Hemisphere occurs on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, at 7:59 a.m. It’s the astronomical moment when the Sun reaches the Tropic of Capricorn, and we have our shortest day and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere in terms of daylight. Regardless of what the weather is doing outside your window, the solstice marks the official start of winter. #winter #coldweather #winterwonderland #caliweather #sweaterweather

December is AIDS Awareness Month. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their
support for people living with HIV, and remember those who have died from an HIV-related illness. Started in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first-ever global health day. #aidsawareness

5 Steps That'll Help Her Ace Being the New Girl

1) Sign up for something;
Lunchtime or after-school activities are one of the easiest ways to meet other girls who share her passions—when
everyone involved cares about the same things, there’s no need for a creative ice breaker to start a conversation.

2) Let your freak flag fly;
Remind your girl that being true to herself—quirks and all—will lead to genuine friendships based on similar senses of humor; common interests; and, most of all, trust.

3) Bring the fun;
Waiting around to be invited to parties and other activities—especially when all the other students seem to have
known each other for years—can make anyone feel lonely. So instead of sitting by and hoping someone will think to
include her, encourage your daughter to invite other kids to join her for tacos after class or to come over for ice cream and a movie on the weekend.

4) Ask questions;
Fact: everyone likes to think they’re an expert on something—so suggest that your daughter ask the girl next to her in
homeroom to give her the skinny on who’s who and what’s what on campus.

5) Don’t be a try hard;
Making new friends is always exciting, but when you’re the new girl at school, it can feel like winning the lottery—or at
least like grabbing hold of a life preserver in the middle of rocky waters. Still, remind your daughter that she’ll do best
if she relaxes and lets friendship take its natural course. #alamedacountycasa #educationtips #volunteer #childdevelopment #helpfosteryouth

Giving Foster Youth a Voice

We train and support over 300 volunteers a year, who are matched with youth in the foster care system in Alameda County and act as mentors, advocates and support systems for youth. Foster youth have so much potential, and are often moved around too often to create meaningful connections and feel seen.

CASA Volunteers are often the only unpaid people in their lives, and are able to see them beyond their paper file and help them feel self-worth and achieve their goals. They attend and help youth navigate their bi-annual court date, check in on educational and employment goals, make sure their housing is safe, help youth connect to community resources, and listen their dreams, among many other things. Our volunteers go above and beyond to help their assigned youth feel heard, empowered and supported!

We need help now. My nephew's dads girlfriend terrorizes him. Tonight at drop off I was so surprised to see his girlfriend there, and dad was nowhere in the car. Right away, she wanted to fistfight my niece as she was walking to the car to greet her son as she does all the time at pick up. She told me if I came any closer, she would fist fight me. In front of my good friend who was with me and in front of my son and her son who was in her car. my son went to get out of the vehicle he is 8 years old she slammed the car door on him when he was halfway out of the car. He is hurt the door slammed on his foot and on his right side I'm taking him to the hospital and calling the police. He is still crying how he does not want to go back. what can I do? so he is safe from this woman who also had been kicked off school grounds because of her behavior.
