Roger is 5 and suddenly he is in a whole new world – confused, scared and even angry.
All he wants is to sleep in his own bed, hug his mom and dad, and play with his own toys just like he used to do.
But “they” say his parents can’t take care of him right now and he has to stay in this new and unfamiliar place.
AEvery year, over three million children in the US are reported abused and neglected.
Despite state welfare attempts to help, many of these children become trapped in the court and child welfare maze and can spend their childhood moving from one temporary shelter to another.
Georgia's foster children are a very vulnerable population who deserve a better chance for a safe, happy and productive life.
CASA advocacy for these children not only helps them get that chance now but also helps to avoid their future school drop-outs, unemploment, welfdare comsumption and possible delinquency.
