PARACHUTE: Butler County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
PARACHUTE is there when a child’s future hangs in the balance. CASA volunteers are ordinary people who do extraordinary work. They come from all walks of life and are trained volunteers who step up to serve the county’s most vulnerable children as court-appointed special advocates (CASA). CASA volunteers work in their own communities and believe in the rights and dignity of children. CASAs are committed to putting that belief to work for children who have been abused or neglected.
CASA volunteers are there for the children. Whatever their age, children removed from home because of abuse and neglect face a frightening, profound unknown. CASAs make sure they don’t face it alone – they stand by the children, for as long as it takes to reach a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers are strong, compassionate adults who are a consistent presence, who care, who listen, and who put the child’s interest before all others. CASA volunteers give children a say in what is happening to them and speak for them when they cannot speak for themselves. CASAs help the children heal, thrive, and give them the support they need to become happy, successful adults. CASAs help the children find the road home, wherever it lies.
