Alaska's Children Need You

Each year thousands of Alaska children are victims of physical or sexual abuse, neglect or abandonment. Hundreds of these children are thrust into court through no fault of their own and become part of the overburdened state child protection system. Their lives are disrupted. Their futures uncertain.

With all the facts and figures, it's tough to remember the human side of child abuse and neglect. We tend to stereotype the victims or deny any connection between them and our happy, safe neighborhoods. But all the children that our CASA programs serve live in Alaska—in your community—and they're not just statistics. Each one is an individual with a compelling story to share.

The same is true of our volunteers. We take ordinary people with extraordinary hearts and train them to be able advocates. They are community members who realize the need to help these children, and each one has a unique background and talents that he or she brings to the CASA cause.

CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and experience. Though different in many ways, CASA volunteers have one thing in common…they come forward to make a difference in the life of a child.

CASA programs throughout Alaska are looking for caring adults interested in becoming a voice for these children. As a CASA volunteer, you will receive training from professionals in the legal and children’s services fields and the complete support of professional CASA program staff to help you through each case.

We have our annual Kempton Hills Garage Sale that occurs every May. All the money raised from the items sold go towards the Alaska CASA
 program.

More information to come as we get closer to May 2013!
