When life gives you lemons…

Build an Advocate!

Voices for Children is looking for teams to build an advocate! All children need heroes, but abused children need superheroes! Our CASA Volunteers are superheroes for kids. They act on behalf of abused or neglected children in the system by investigating the case, facilitating information sharing, advocating for what is best for the child, and by simply being in the child’s corner through a difficult time! Statistics show that the cost to recruit, train, and support a volunteer advocate for one month is $265. So we are looking for teams to raise $265 to build and decorate their own advocates! All advocates completed and turned in by September 8, 2016 will be displayed at our When Life Gives You Lemons fundraiser event and the team will receive one free ticket. All advocates built and returned by September 30, 2016 will be displayed at local businesses as well as in the local newspapers. We can’t wait to see all the different ways the advocates are decorated by your teams! For more information on CASA or Voices for children, please visit www.voicesforchildren.net.

To support the current 59 Voices for Children volunteers for ONE YEAR = $187,620. We currently have a Waiting List of 128 abused or neglected children in Jefferson and Ripley counties who are in need of a CASA Volunteer to be in their corner and on their side through this difficult time.
