We Believe in Our Community’s Children
At CASA of South Central Missouri we believe that every child in foster care deserves to have a voice. We believe that each child in care should have their best interests met. We believe that every child in care deserves to have a safe and healthy home in which to live.
In 2020, there were 726 children who found themselves in care, at no fault of their own: Ranking our area as one of the highest rates of child abuse per capita in the State of Missouri. Our volunteers gave a voice to over 350 children because they believe. This year, help us provide a voice for every child in care. We need more than 100 new volunteers to lend their voice to help Change a Child’s Story. ™
We Believe We Can Serve Every Child in Need
It takes our organization approximately $1300 per child each year ($108 a month) to provide recruitment, training, support, and services. Additionally, CASA provides the community with training opportunities throughout the year as well as resources for families and children in need. Though we receive some funds from grants and other sources, we do not have near enough to meet the needs of the over 700 children in our region. You can help us make serving every child a possibility.
If you can’t give financially at this time, we can still use your help! You can become a volunteer, help us with events, share our mission and our stories on social media...there are so many different ways to believe.
