For the over 500 children living in foster care in Prince George’s County, it often takes four years (twice the national average) to find a stable home. In those years, their Court Appointed Special Advocate may well be the only source of comfort and safety they have. For years, CASA/Prince George’s County has given a voice to abused and neglected children in the foster care system by screening, training, and supervising volunteer advocates and promoting the timely placement of children in stable homes. While attorneys are experts on the law, CASA volunteers are experts on the child and provide the long-term, best-interest advocacy that children in complex, frightening situations desperately need. For many youth paired with a CASA, their advocate was the first adult on whom they could unconditionally rely.
