It is about that time again and CASA Kendall County could really use anyone that is a member of this group to consider nominating us this next session! This year has brought about never before seen numbers of new kids in care. Domestic violence and mental health issues are rising quickly and the effects on our children are devastating. While our fundraisers have been canceled, many of our amazing supporters struggling to just support their own families and volunteer pools shrinking, the number of kids who critically need a CASA by their side has doubled. The only way to meet the demand is with more volunteers, which means more training and more staff to stand beside our volunteers as they do this life changing work. In our world, a donation of $8000 can support the training of as many as 40 new volunteers! Right now we have about 45 volunteers and have served 108 children already this year! We need more volunteers fast or we will face the very real possibility of having to wait list children.. That is a reality I am not willing to accept. That number is compared to the 65 children in all of 2019! And we still have two of the " busiest" months in our field to go. A month ago the trending hashtag was Savethechildren, but sadly it seems that has already lost its momentum. If you were someone who posted this hash tag or thought "there has to be more I can do to help children" this is a way to actually help save the children. And these children are here in our towns, in our schools, on your child's team or in their daycare. These children can have a new story with your help. Please consider nominating and voting for CASA this fall. We have never needed our community support more. If you aren't a member I encourage you to consider joining now!
