#CASAMAN

An initiative to recruit more male volunteers

CASA children usually reflect the overall demographics of children in foster care in Kent County, especially when it comes to their gender identities: they are almost evenly split between male and female. 

In 2020, 47% of the children with CASA volunteers identified as male, yet only 13% of our volunteers did. It's important for boys, especially in their teen years, to be able to identify with another caring, male adult. We launched the #CASAMAN initiative to help highlight the stories of the men involved at CASA of Kent County, as well as encourage more people who identify as male to volunteer. 

Listen to interviews with some of our CASA Men here.  

CASA volunteers say they get enormous satisfaction from their work. There’s nothing like the feeling you get when you help a child overcome the traumas of their past and build a better life. It’s an investment that pays dividends for generations, as a child who escapes abuse and neglect is more likely to provide a stable home for their own children.
