April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
By the time you finish reading this, more than 30 cases of child abuse will be reported to authorities nationwide. By the end of today, that number will swell past 9,000. Four of those children will die at the hands of their abuser. All in a single day.
“To me, volunteering is a way to give back to the world all of the blessings I have received. It is the one gift that goes beyond money and that touches lives in a positive way,”
It is about celebrating the values of service and giving back to our communities, both local and transnational. There is so much we can do to make a positive impact here in our own backyard. This year, CASA of Morris and Sussex Counties is again joining the global movement, and we want to double our impact.
“I have seen the frustrations, struggles and ongoing cycles that are created. I have developed a great sense of empathy and a greater understanding for those struggling. In addition, I have met some genuinely amazing people, including the resource family, various professional staff, caseworkers and many others who work hard in the best interest of these children.”
