I want to help break the cycle of abuse and neglect and volunteering and supporting this agency is the best way I know to do that.
When I heard the CASA story, I quickly became connected to the mission and this organization. I’ve gone from being a CASA to assisting with annual events and I look forward to becoming an advocate again.
Two things keep me coming back – the purpose and the people.
This is necessary work to be done, and the “family” of professional staff, community leaders, mentors, financial supporters and committed volunteers who keep “showing up” for children and families in Fort Bend motivate me to want to do that too. I want to help break the cycle of abuse and neglect and volunteering and supporting this agency is the best way I know to do that.
I work behind-the-scenes on the Soiree, which is one of the agency’s annual fundraising projects. My role is to collaborate with staff and produce the Gala program and some of the creative content for it. Over time, I’ve watched the event grow and become known for highlighting the exceptional work done for children and families in the Fort Bend Community. While the mechanism is a “party”, the mission is to educate and inform. . . and provide ways for community partners to support the work through tangible, financial gifts.
It’s my hope that the work of gathering people for a purpose, however that may look in these unique times, will help create needed financial support and community awareness for Child Advocates of Fort Bend. I’m thankful that we have such an asset to “Provide a Voice”.
