Why Donate?

CASA is a local non-profit 501c3, which means that we run strictly on donations and grants that we receive.

We train volunteers three times a year to go out in the community to work with a child who is in the foster care system.

CASA’s ultimate goal is to provide financial stability from the donations from the community so we can keep the doors open and continue our goal of helping children.

Whether you are able to donate once a year, or contribute every month, it all makes a difference!
