Five for Five Campaign

CASA of Baltimore and CASA of Baltimore County, the Court Appointed Special Advocate programs of the Greater Baltimore Area, are thrilled to announce our new and exciting initiative, the Five for Five Campaign!

Our Vision

The vision of this campaign is to raise awareness within the African American Community about the void and need for African American volunteers, with a special focus on African American male role models, for children in foster care. Our goal is to build long-term and sustainable connections and partnerships with representatives from 5 pillars within the African American Community: 

  • Places of Worship
  • Higher Education
  • Pan-Hellenic Council
  • Civil Rights Organizations
  • Social Groups
  • These individuals will help to increase the number of African American volunteers who will become advocates for children served by CASA.

Why Volunteer Demographics Matter

 In order to best serve our youth, our volunteers must reflect the population of kids we serve, the majority of whom are African American. These volunteers will mentor and speak up for children, while advocating for the desired outcome of placement in loving, safe and permanent homes.
