Alabama Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) — Speaking Up for Abused and Neglected Children

More than 14,000 of Alabama’s most vulnerable children are attending court hearings, adjusting to new homes and navigating the child welfare system every day. CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interests of these children.

Our goal is to provide a dedicated CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child to give them a voice and help them thrive in a safe and loving home. With your support, Together We Will achieve that goal. Learn how you can help.

CASA Volunteers are still working to #ChangeAChildsStory. Here are some inspiring examples of advocacy during the COVID-19 pandemic:

-One volunteer took a video of herself reading a story and sent it to the children she serves so they can listen to her read whenever they want.

-Volunteers who work with teens are listening to music with them over Spotify, helping teens practice for virtual job interviews, and doing craft projects with them online.

-Volunteers are using this opportunity to strengthen connections by sharing more about their lives with children: one recently gave her assigned children a virtual tour of her farm.

-CASA/GAL volunteers are catching up with children on the phone or using video chat.

-Some volunteers are introducing children to the joys of receiving and sending snail mail, by mailing letters with a self-addressed stamped envelope so children can write back.

-Volunteers are dropping off care packages with food, puzzles, games and coloring pages. Some include a self-addressed stamped envelope so kids can share their finished artwork.

-Where allowed by the court, volunteers are helping youth communicate with their families of origin.

-Volunteers are meeting with children in person by going for walks while maintaining a safe distance, or by standing outside and talking with children who are on a porch or at the window.

-In some locations, restaurants have volunteered to supply children with meals through CASA/GAL volunteers.

Alabama CASA’s “call to action” is to engage communities and citizens across the state to be a difference maker. Our plan is to activate ambassadors to make a $10 a month commitment for a year. Proceeds will yield funds for local programs to enable volunteer recruitment, training and child advocacy awareness education that ultimately assists in serving abused, abandoned and neglected children.
