You can help provide children with safety and stability. By donating to CASA, you will help us recruit, train, and support volunteers who advocate for the best interest of children and ensure their needs are being met. Our hope is that we can depend on you and the generosity of business and community leaders like you to help us achieve our vision of serving 100% of children in the child welfare system in Forsyth County. With your help, we can meet our vision of a trained volunteer advocate, a safe home and a promising future for every child in need in our community.
