CASA Prince George’s County
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)/ Prince George’s County empowers community volunteers to advocate and provide a voice for abused and neglected children in the Prince George’s County foster care system. A CASA volunteer is very often the only adult a child has been able to rely upon in their entire lives. It’s that simple – a qualified, caring adult can change everything. Your tax-deductible donation to our #GivingTuesday for the Child! Campaign will help us recruit and train more volunteers who will bring a voice to children in foster care.

Can you help provide a soccer uniform for 250 new studentshttp://www.razoo.com/story/Givingtuesday-Provide-A-Child-A-Soccer-Uniform
As you share in the joy of the holiday season we hope you will remember that there are hundreds of families in Fairfax County needing FACETS’ help. They are living in cars or motels or doubling up with family members. Some are barely scraping by in their own homes with the specter of eviction looming. And there are hundreds of people who simply need a helping hand to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Your generosity this season will not only open doors for people in need, it will also literally bring people home for the holidays’
