CASA, our Court Appointed Special Advocates program, is at the heart of our mission and a shining example of ordinary individuals making an extraordinary impact in the lives of children. CASA’s mission is to promote and advocate for the best interests of children involved in the hundreds of abuse and neglect cases in Franklin and Hampshire counties each year.
Foster Dignity makes life easier for children in foster care by providing brand-new, free, urgently needed items that enhance individual lives in immediate ways. We collect clothing, school materials, toys, backpacks and more. This volunteer coordinated program offers tangible means of dignity to children in need.
SEEING THEIR VOICES was initiated by Friends of Children to give young people who have experienced foster care a vehicle to express themselves. It is intended to both raise awareness and to positively impact the lives of every child still in care. It is so important for all of us to understand the hopes and dreams of children in foster care and to know that they count on us to help them get to a positive future.
