We need one page materials that convey who we are, what we do, and why someone should care. We need these for our board members to have and use and have on hand and to use for tabling events and to use to ask for sponsors for events.
We are in desperate need of new materials. We have new board members who have new connections and want to be able to present material about the organization to potential sponsors and donors. As the ED of a small organization who also is responsible for the Development and Marketing, getting to this type of project just keeps getting pushed down the to do list and is also not my best skill set. This would be a huge help to update the profile of our organization.
The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Philadelphia is to deliver personalized, integrated, child-centered advocacy to abused and neglected children in foster care through a diverse community of trained and skilled volunteers.
CASA is the only program in Philadelphia that leverages the resources of trained community volunteers to advocate for a child's best interests in and out court. CASA volunteers effectively advocate to ensure children are well cared for while in the foster care system, are placed in a permanent home, or exit the system with the education, skills, and supports they need for a stable and happy future.
The relationships forged between CASA volunteers and the children they serve make a critical difference in life trajectory of that child. Of the cases CASA has closed, 85% have achieved a permanent outcome: over 55% have been reunified with a relative or parent and 35% were adopted or permanently placed. As reflected in national CASA statistics, children with a CASA spend less time in foster care, receive more services, and are more successful in school.
