CASA for Children
If you want to advocate for kids in the foster care system, signing up to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate is a great place to start. The system is so overburdened by burned out social workers and layers of bureaucracy….your role would be to make sure a child appointed to you by a judge does not get lost in the shuffle of the bureaucratic mess. You can be a mentor, a friend, and advocate for a foster child in need. Find out more at: http://www.casaforchildren.org/site/c.mtJSJ7MPIsE/b.5301295/k.BE9A/Home.htm.
