Each day, Maryland CASA works to ensure all victims of child abuse and neglect their right to grow up in safe and permanent homes. We carry out our mission through the efforts of professionally-trained volunteers who are appointed by the court to speak up for the best interests of children who are under the protection of the courts.
We couldn’t do this important work without you.
Now you can help even more by becoming a Champion for Children, our monthly giving program. Our Champions for Children truly are at the heart of the essential work we do every day to help vulnerable children. By becoming a monthly donor, you will join a special team of people who are champions for abused and neglected children in Maryland.
Here’s what YOUR monthly donations can do:
- 50¢ per day ($15/month) will help provide training materials for up to 25 CASA volunteers.
- $1.50 per day ($45/month) will provide scholarships for 12 volunteers attending our annual conference.
- $2.50 per day ($75/month) will provide stipends for up to 12 former foster youth to share their stories and experiences at training events.
- $3.33 per day ($100/month) will support the cost of a volunteer recruitment campaign for one month.
- $4.16 per day ($125/month) will provide a specialized training session for up to 50 volunteers.
