Dear Potential Sponsor,
Child abuse and neglect is an ongoing epidemic. It has a lasting negative impact on the victims, our society, and our economy.
Last year in Texas:
- 222 children died due to child abuse or neglect.
- Every 9 minutes, a child became a victim of abuse or neglect.
- 60% of child abuse or neglect victims were under the age of 6.
While the numbers are daunting, at CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County, we believe that nothing is impossible and that we are all an essential part of the solution. Together, we can help break the cycle of abuse and neglect.
CASA volunteers speak up for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the foster care system. Last year, 236 volunteer Advocates spoke up for 556 abused and neglected children in Montgomery County (100% of abuse/neglect cases). These Advocates provide our county’s most vulnerable children the best possible chance to live in a safe and loving HOME.
By sponsoring the CASA Superhero Run, you are helping change children’s lives. You are helping CASA Advocates find relatives for children who thought they were alone, helping keep brothers and sisters together, and helping toddlers find someone they can safely and lovingly call “Mom”. You are playing a part in giving kids in our own community a chance to really live life.
In Montgomery County, it costs $1500 to provide an Advocate for a child for a year. A $7,500 sponsorship will make a lifetime difference for 5 children in our county.
And of course there are promotional benefits for you as well. As you review the materials , please decide at what level of sponsorship you would like to participate—how many children can you help today.
Thank you for your generosity and for your participation in making life better for children in our county.
Ann McAlpin, Executive Director, CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County
