Philanthropy Project

Introducing the 2019 RMASFAA Philanthropy Organization:

CASA of Yellowstone County is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advocate for a safe and permanent home for abused and neglected children in Yellowstone County. This is accomplished through the work of volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates, appointed by a judge to represent a child or group of siblings in foster care and speak up for the children's best interests.

Court Appointed Special Advocates - or CASAs - are responsible for visiting the children regularly at the foster home and school, and investigating aspects of the case. With the information they gather, CASAs write monthly reports that are distributed to the judge and legal parties in the case, and they attend all court hearings to be the voice for the children in court. Throughout the length of a case, foster care placements will change, social workers will change, attorneys will change, and schools will change; the child's life is full of changes. In contrast, each CASA makes a commitment to stay with the child throughout the duration of their time in the foster care system.

When you donate, you are helping train and support volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. You are also helping build a local movement of individuals who tirelessly work to ensure every child who needs a Court Appointed Special Advocate can have one. If you wish to donate prior to the RMASFAA Conference please go on-line at: https://www.yellowstonecasa.org/
