Rockdale CASA has a few organizational needs to ensure that we provide quality advocacy to children in foster care.
Gas cards for CASA volunteers to visit their assigned child in foster care and
Meals for our volunteer trainings. Annually, CASA will host 8-week trainings with community volunteers 2-3 times a year. We could potentially provide 24 meals to approximately 15 volunteers. If you would like to donate meals for training please email Trainer@rockdalecasa.org.
NEEDS OF CHIDLREN in Foster Care
Rockdale CASA works with our community partners such as the Juvenile Court and Department of Family & Children Services (DFCS) to ensure that children who have experienced abuse or neglect have their needs met. We want each child to know they are not alone and there is a team of adults working behind them.
For this reason, we are often in need of the following items:
Full-size toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, deodorant, and female hygiene products
Large duffle bags or gift cards for suitcases for children when they come into care. Due to limited space, we prefer gift cards or foldable duffle bags , Gift cards for sporting goods stores, Walmart, Target, etc. to assist with clothing/shoes for athletic participation. Please reach out by calling our office before dropping any items off.
“To give a child a CASA volunteer is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world.”
