To The Daily Sun,
We want to thank everyone who has helped CASA of N.H. in this past year.
First and foremost, we are incredibly grateful to our volunteer advocates who are meeting with children and youth in our communities who have been abused/neglected. They are showing these children that there is a caring adult who wants to get to know them and is working diligently to help get them into a safe and permanent home. Our advocates are making a positive difference and we are so proud of all they do for children in need. Due to the strict confidentiality of these cases, they can not share the heartbreaking stories nor can they tell you about the happy-endings that they helped create, so their incredible efforts and work often goes unrecognized.
Thank you to the generous support of area businesses that have helped us with raffle items for fundraising, meeting and interview space and accommodations. There are also many people who have attended one of our events, donated, grabbed a brochure, purchased our merchandise, told someone about CASA, followed us on Twitter or "liked" us on Facebook. These are great ways to help us spread attention to the hidden and often overlooked issue of child abuse/neglect that occurs right in our communities.
Finally, thank you to our new and future volunteers. We will be offering several trainings in the upcoming year as we still have a critical need for more advocates out of the Laconia and Plymouth courts. For an application or more information call Jen at 536-1663.
