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.
