Our Mission

What are you waiting for? The benefits of mentoring will not only give back to your mentee, but also to your community, and even to you.

Thanks to COVID-19, we are seeing a confluence of crises and children are suffering.  This is a “perfect storm,” one that will inevitably result over the coming months and years in a huge wave of abused, neglected children coming into an already under-funded, under-staffed foster care system. CASAs are a beacon of hope for children in the system, and they have never been needed more than they are now.

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in checking in on others, it’s important for your mental health to practice self-care.
