Did you know that a child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to have better outcomes?
Children and youth assigned a CASA volunteer reported significantly higher levels of hope.
A child’s hope has been linked to numerous positive outcomes such as academic success, overall wellbeing, increases in self-control, positive social relationships and optimism.
Children with a CASA volunteer tend to perform better academically and behaviorally in school, are more likely to achieve permanency, and are less likely to reenter the child welfare system.
