BRINGING HOPE TO CHILDREN
SUFFERING FROM ABUSE & NEGLECT

THE PROBLEM

AN OVERWHELMED CHILD
WELFARE SYSTEM

 

 

2,000+ reports of Child Abuse & Neglect in McHenry County each year.

200+ children will be in the court's care as a victim of abuse or neglect.

29 Months: The average time a child in IL will stay in foster care.

3 Times: The average number of times for a foster child to be moved.

THE SOLUTION

WELL TRAINED & COMMITTED VOLUNTEERS

 

 

CASA provides a trained volunteer to advocate for the best interest of the child in the courtroom and communicate the child's needs to the judge.

The Volunteer Advocate is often the only adult constant in the child's life during their time in foster care.

THE RESULTS

BRIGHTER FUTURES FOR FOSTER CHILDREN

 

 

A child with a CASA Volunteer:

  • Spends an average of 9 months less in foster care

  • 50% less likely to re-enter foster care

  • More likely to graduate high school

  • Less likely to be incarcerated
