JOIN OUR EFFORTS
Sadly, more than 150 children in Kittitas County were removed from their homes and placed in foster care last year. Fortunately, having a caring, consistent adult – like a CASA volunteer can make all the difference.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Back to school is a time for children and youth to be excited about their futures and to reconnect with stability, as they look forward to seeing their friends, teachers, and staff, and return to their extra-curricular activities. The start of a new school year can be hectic for all types of families, but it is especially challenging for children in the child welfare system. Children and youth who have experienced abuse or neglect, and have been removed from their homes, may be reentering schools after a significant period of remote learning or entering a new school this year with higher levels of stress and uncertainty.
Children in the child welfare system may grapple with the trauma of being removed from their homes and struggle with their social-emotional well-being. Learning loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or the loss of family members can also be compounding factors to the stress of “back to school.”
As students return to school, having a consistent adult to advocate for their best interests as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is needed now more than ever.
You can help the children in our community by
- donating school supplies
- making a cash donation so we can buy the children the needed supplies,
- and/or learn more about becoming an advocate and changing the trajectory of these children’s lives.
