Non-Profit Spotlight: CASA of Baltimore County.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Baltimore County is a non-profit organization that provides individual advocacy for children in foster care that have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. With the hope of each child receiving a safe, loving, permanent home, this organization aims to one day be able to help each of the nearly 600 children in the foster care system in Baltimore County.

“This organization has such an important role in the lives of the children in Baltimore County’s foster care system,” says Jennifer Stine, executive director of CASA of Baltimore County. “Our volunteers are really what makes it so special. They are incredibly dedicated, generous individuals who give their time, energy, and heart to children who often have no one else who will show them that attention. They become a consistent, caring adult in the life of a child who is constantly experiencing change. Many of our volunteers work with a child for years, helping them navigate the foster care and court systems; advocating for them in court, schools, and the community; and helping them learn to advocate for themselves.”

There are many ways that you can get involved with CASA of Baltimore County. There is always a need for volunteers. Becoming a volunteer advocate doesn’t require a legal or social work background and will help give a voice to a child in our community.

Is your company looking to expand their corporate giving? Become a donor! Casa of Baltimore County is always looking for one-time donations, ongoing partners, or event sponsors to help their efforts. You can even host your own event to help raise funds and awareness for this great organization. For more information, visit www.casabaltco.org.
