November is National Adoption Month

This year, we celebrate 19 years of November being recognized as National Adoption Month.

“Every November, a Presidential Proclamation launches activities and celebrations to help build awareness of adoption throughout the nation. Thousands of community organizations arrange and host programs, events, and activities to share positive adoption stories, challenge the myths, and draw attention to the thousands of children in foster care who are waiting for permanent families.”

Here at Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) we are called to remember our mission. Our mission is to recruit, train, and supervise court-appointed volunteer Advocates who provide constancy for abused and neglected children and youth while advocating for services and placement in safe and permanent homes.

We must always keep in mind that our ultimate goal is to find a safe and permanent home for all of the children we serve. This year, our goal is to serve 1,950 children through the work of 565 volunteer Advocates.
