Discover Your Voice
Becoming the voice of a child in foster care leads to fewer foster home placements, better academic performance and hope for a promising future. Channel your compassion today into helping a child find a safe, permanent home tomorrow.
DCFS reports that there are more than 400 children in foster care each year.
CASA of River Valley advocated for 345 children last year.
Currently we have 106 volunteers advocating for children in our community.
Since 1994, our volunteers have changed the lives of more than 3,000 children.
Our CASA volunteers pledge to be there for these children. To listen to them, speak for them, and stand up in court to represent their best interests. To fight without ceasing until they are able to find safe, permanent, loving homes. By acting as their voice, we can help these children to overcome their past, heal emotionally, and have the chance of a brighter future that is filled with hope.
