Proceeds from the 20, 40 or 80 mile bike ride will directly benefit our Flathead County CASA program. Funds are desperately needed to support the nearly 70 CASA volunteers. In addition, new volunteers need to be recruited and trained to help with increasing court cases.
CASA volunteers are everyday citizens assigned by the court for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse or neglect. They stand up for children and change their lives.
What does CASA do?
CASA can be the difference between a child’s life that is full of broken dreams and a life that is lived to the fullest potential.
- CASA volunteers watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children to make sure they don’t get lost in the legal/social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes.
- More than 475 CASA volunteers throughout Montana have helped over 1200 abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes in 2011.
- CASA seeks funding to train and support volunteers to help the additional 250 children who currently need advocacy support.
