TOO MANY CHILDREN IN HAWAII LIVE IN FEAR
They live in fear of what their father or mother might do to them. The fear of being totally alone, neglected and never having a placed to call home. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate, you will serve as a powerful voice for a child in court, and act as an for a child who otherwise is lost and does not have voice.
THE NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS
In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by Family Court judges, CASA volunteers typically handle one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that a child needs in order to thrive.
