Are you the Pastor of a Fort Bend County Church?
If so, please join us to learn more about the desperate need for children in the foster care system to have a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer and how to raise awareness in the community.
When children are removed from their homes due to evidence of abuse or neglect, they are placed in the care of the state. Foster care serves as a temporary placement for these children, but they are often stuck moving from placement to placement with little hope of reunification. CASA volunteer play a critical role in the lives of these children by building a trusting relationship with them, determining what is in their best interest and acting as a voice for them in court. They work to reunite the children with their families and, when that is not an option, look for others who may be able to provide safe, loving and permanent homes.
So where do YOU come in?
At this brunch, we hope to provide information and raise awareness of the critical need for CASA volunteers. We believe that by working with pastors and other community leaders, we can find an audience of worshipers who may be willing to help the children by serving as CASA volunteers.
Brunch will be served. For more information or to reserve your seat, contact Lauren at email@example.com.
