There is a 75 to 1 return on investment for donating to a child advocacy program. Federal funding for one staff supervisory position within a local program supports 30 trained volunteers assigned to 75+ cases within a year. This adds up to over 150 children.
“The Child Welfare System could not afford to provide a comparable level of advocacy through non-volunteer approaches. In 2013, volunteers contributed 5.75 million advocacy hours, equivalent to $290 million in taxpayers dollars if compensated for their services.” ~The National CASA Association.
A monthly donation of $88 a month fully funds a foster child for their duration of Foster care, and that one year of advocacy costs less than one month of foster care. Thank you for you donation.
