Strong City/CASA Marketing & Recruitment Coordinator
 
 
 
CASA Prince George’s County works with children who have been deemed Children in Need of Assistance (CINA) due to the severity of abuse or neglect they have experienced and, as a result, are living in foster care. CASA recruits citizen volunteers from the community to provide a voice to abused and neglected children and youth in foster care. Volunteers receive 37 hours of pre-service training prior to being assigned to a case and then are closely supervised by professional staff as they work to gather information to make recommendations to the court about the best interests of the child or youth to whom they are assigned. Multiple studies have proven that children with a CASA volunteer spend less time in foster care, receive more services, are less likely to return to foster care, do better in school and perform better in 9 key areas of protective factors. Very often, the CASA volunteer is the only supportive adult in a young person’s life and that commitment makes a huge impact in improving outcomes. CASA currently serves just 25% of the youth in foster care in Prince George’s County which means that hundreds of youth pass through the system without a caring adult dedicated to working one-on-one with them to ensure they receive the services they need, provide consistent support and help seek a permanent placement. This position is sponsored by Strong City Baltimore in Baltimore, MD; and the VISTA member will serve with CASA-PG County in Riverdale, MD. Strong City serves as the VISTA Project Sponsor to more than 30 nonprofit, government, and community organizations throughout Baltimore City and Maryland. Established in 1969 to help neighborhoods become safer, better places to live, Strong City's mission is to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people. Strong City will provide support to CASA and the VISTA member throughout the year, including recruitment, training, professional development opportunities, and resources.
