April is National Autism Awareness Month. Recent statistics from the CDC show that about 1 percent of the world population has autism spectrum disorder and the prevalence in the United States is estimated at 1 in 54 births. Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. According to Spectrum Magazine, children with autism are particularly likely to end up in the foster care system. #autismawareness

Hello? CASA calling! A CASA volunteer works to ensure a child's best interest is being met by identifying and addressing risks to the child’s safety and well-being, finding supportive people in the child’s life that they can work with to promote safety and well-being for the child during their time in care, ensuring appropriate physical and mental health assessments are completed and that the child’s needs are understood by the family and everyone involved in the case through a trauma-informed approach, and verifying educational assessments are completed and educational supports are in place. #alamedacountycasa #nonprofit #volunteer #beacasa #fosteryouth #fostercare #advocate #bayarea #california

April 3rd is Find a Rainbow Day!Rainbows are caused by the reflection, refraction, and dispersion of light in water, resulting in a visual spectrum of light appearing in the sky, taking the form of amulticolored arc. They always appear on the side of the sky directly opposite to the sun. How to celebrate? Try Finding a rainbow lightly humid but sunny day is the perfect day to find a rainbow. Try standing with your back to the sun and looking to the horizon and hopefully you'll get to see a majestic rainbow! Make Your Own Rainbow. Maybe the day is too sunny,and you just can’t seem to find a rainbow. Don't worry you can makeyour own! A light mist from the water hose at a certain angle that catches the sun can create its own rainbow. You can also try making tiedye shirts or rainbow colored cupcakes, just to sprinkle some color into your day. Celebrate LGBTQ+ Events 🏳️‍🌈 Rainbows are a source of pride and expression for the LGBTQ+ community and if you can’t find a 🌈 in the wild, then celebrate your pride or bean ally. #rainbowday

She needs someone to take her to the beach. CASA volunteers plan fun activities for their assigned children, but they also do so much more. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)volunteer gathers information from everyone involved in a child’s daily life, including members ofthe child’s family, foster parents, teachers, lawyers, social workers and other relevant persons.Then, they report to a judge in order to advocate for the child’s best interests.Ideally, CASA volunteers will work towards reuniting the child with their family of origin whenever safe, and if reunification is not possible, they may recommend placing the child with extended family or family friends. CASA volunteers, like the children they help, come from all walks of life. #alamedacountycasa #nonprofit #volunteer #fosteryouth #bayarea #california

He needs someone to fly a kite with him. All children deserve a caring adult by their side for the serious times and for the fun times. For youth in foster care, it’s hard to stay playful when their lives get upended by abuse or neglect. A CASA volunteer provides stability, friendship, andpowerful advocacy to keep kids on track in school and on the playground. #nonprofit #alamedacountycasa #volunteer #fostercare #becomeacasa

CASA of Alameda County | "Every youth needs a champion"

She needs someone to show her report cards to. Every child wants to feel like someone is proud of them when they succeed or there for them when they fail. For children in foster care, a CASA volunteer is often the one adult in their lives that stays with them during their entire journey through the court system. Find out how to support the CASA program in your community by visiting our website.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green and leprechauns. In Celtic folktales, leprechauns were cranky souls, responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure. Leprechauns have their own holiday on May 13, but are also celebrated on St. Patrick's, with many dressing up as the wily fairies. #stpatricksday

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.
