Friends of Alaska’s Children in Care support for volunteers falls primarily into two categories: 1) providing help for volunteers in their contacts with the children for whom they advocate, and 2) providing assistance to volunteers for continuing education. Gift cards are available through local CASA program coordinators for use in activities with children and youth. In addition, training and education opportunities, such as the bi-annual state-wide CASA/GAL Conference, are available to volunteers through scholarships.
New in 2020! To best support CASAs in their tremendous work with children and youth in care, FACC has established funding to directly support CASA needs such as reimbursement for travel to attend final adoptions/relative placements/alternative care placements and other out-of-pocket CASA expenses that directly support advocacy of CASA represented child(ren). Direct support requests may be made by CASAs and may also be requested by GALs and CASA Program Coordinators on a CASA’s behalf, with the CASA’s consent.
