Friends of CASA

Can't serve as a Volunteer Advocate? No problem - we always need Friends of CASA who can help in other ways! Below is a list of things that you can help with throughout the year in order to serve our children better.

Financial: We can always benefit from funds in order to help more children. 

Events:  Help at special events, fundraisers and speaking engagements. 

Lend your talent:  Have a talent or expertise!   

Toys: New, unwrapped toys in all different price and age ranges. CASA supports an annual  Christmas toy drive that ensures children who are placed away from their families during the holidays still receive gifts.

Small Gifts: CASA volunteers must build trust and rapport with their children and what better way to do this than playing together. We can always use little games, coloring books and crayons, puzzles, bead kits, race cars, etc... Any small and inexpensive items that may be left with child.

Resource Materials: Books, videos and other items that can enhance CASA volunteer work are always in demand. We strive to keep a diverse collection of resource materials to "keep us on our toes". Any reference materials that would help us to better understand the children and families we work with are very much appreciated.

Office Supplies: Not as fun as picking out toys, but the office is constantly in need of something! From white out to new computer equipment - we can use just about anything. Not sure what to get? Gift certificates to Office Depot, Sam's Club or any local office supply store are a HUGE help!

Foster Homes: Of course this is no small wish. Lonoke County seeks quality foster homes to care for these young victims of abuse and neglect. If you or someone you know are interested in becoming a foster parent, please contact your local Department of Children and Family Services office or visit http://www.fosterarkansas.org.

The CALL (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime): An exciting foster care initiative has rapidly emerged as churches are joining together with an unprecedented level of support from the top levels of leadership of the Arkansas DHS’ Division of Children and Family Services. The initiative is named The C.A.L.L. -- Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime -- because of God's call on the Church: "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." James 1:27.  http://www.thecallinarkansas.org
