CASA's 2nd Annual Forgotten Children Walk

post by Tara Pariso in announcements, CASA for Children, community

The 2nd Annual Forgotten Children Walk will be held Saturday, May 21st at Centennial Park. This event includes a display of life-sized cut-outs of children representing each child in foster care in Genesee County, a 1.5 mile walk to benefit CASA, a Batavia Area Jaycees Hot Dog Stand, and community information.

This event is to raise awareness that every day in Genesee County there are an average of 65-75 children in foster care.  These are children that need the support of their community in order to overcome adversity and grow to be happy, healthy adults.  CASA volunteers advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children involved in Family Court.  A child that has a CASA volunteer is less likely to remain in foster care long-term and is less likely to reenter the system.  By providing a child in need with a CASA volunteer, that child is provided a mentor, an advocate, and a voice.

Please visit www.geneseecountycasa.org under the What We're Doing tab to find walk registration forms and information on how you can help a child in need.  The 1st 50 registered walkers will receive a free T-shirt (supplies are limited) and there will be prizes and recognition at the end of the walk.  Registration begins at 9:15am and the walk begins at 10am. 

Thank you to all sponsors that made this event possible: Wegmans, Terry Hills, Lucky Ducky Day Care, Liberty Pumps, Target, Tops, BJ's, Pauly's Pizzeria, WBTA, Genesee Valley Penny Saver, the Daily News, P. W. Minor, Alex's Place, ESL Federal Credit Union, M & T Bank, Five Star Bank, Freed Maxick & Battaglia, PC.

Genesee County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children, Inc. receives Kelly For Kids Foundation Grant.

 

At the 3rd Annual Grant Recipient Luncheon for the Kelly For Kids Foundation, held on January 11, 2010 at Ilio Dipaolo’s restaurant in Blasdell, NY, Genesee County CASA for Children received a grant for $2,500 from the Kelly For Kids Foundation. This grant came out of the support of Terry Hills Restaurant and Golf Course. Each year Terry Hills chooses grant recipients that work with children in the community for such funds for hosting the tournament put on by Jim Kelly.
 
Genesee County CASA for Children would like to thank Terry Hills, Mr. Kelly, and the Kelly For Kids Foundation for their generous support. The funds from this grant will assist CASA in continuing our mission to provide trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of those children who come to the attention of Family Court as a result of abuse or neglect. CASA’s hope for this upcoming year is to recruit and train at least 5 new advocates that will be able to take case assignment and advocate for the abused and neglected children in our community.

Looking For a Way to Be More Active in the Community?

This program is supported by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services through the Genesee County Youth Bureau There are many ways in which individuals can become more active in their community, and one of the most satisfying ways is to find an organization you care about and volunteer your time.  Genesee County CASA for Children is a non-profit organization that advocates for abused and neglected children in our community.  By becoming a volunteer advocate, you would be giving a child a powerful voice during what can be daunting court proceedings in Family Court. 

A CASA advocate monitors court orders, maintains a relationship with the child or children invovled, makes reports and reccomendations to the court about safe, permanent placement of the child or chidlren, attends court proceedings, and gathers all case information to be reported back the the family court.

On average, after training, an advocate spends between 8 and 10 hours a month on their assigned case.  It has been shown that chidlren who have a CASA are more likely to be in safe, permanent homes, and have better opportunities for success later in life.  If you think CASA might be the organization that you would fit into, please don't hesitate.  Their are hundreds of children right here in Genesee County that are in need of a CASA.

Please contact Tara Pariso at (585) 344-2550 x 2331 or [email protected] for more information and application.

This program is supported by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services through the Genesee County Youth Bureau
