Service projects are a great way for you or your group to get involved with the Children’s Advocacy Alliance. The projects below are ongoing projects, but we can also meet with you to discuss a project specific to your group’s focus.
Wall of Hope: The Wall of Hope project allows children who come into the Children’s Advocacy Alliance to receive a blanket and select an item to take home such as a toy, book, hat, or necklace. The purpose is to reinforce the idea that the Children’s Advocacy Alliance is place of comfort and safety.
My Stuff Bags: My Stuff Bags ensure each child who is taken into foster care has a bag in which to carry their personal belongings. Most often a child is taken into care with little warning and as a result arrives at the foster home with their clothes thrown into a trash bag. In addition to ensuring the child has an actual bag, the My Stuff Bag also has a blanket and personal hygiene items as these items are often not packed.
Birthday Buckets: A Birthday Bucket contains everything a foster parent or guardian needs to make a birthday cake for the child in their care. So often in foster care, simple things like a birthday cake and party hats are difficult to make happen. The Birthday Bucket is delivered to the child by the CASA Advocate and ensures they can celebrate their birthday.
