Beautiful Day’s original mission began with a simple
statement to elementary school age kids: “The day you were born was a BEAUTIFUL
DAY. Your life and existence are worthy of being celebrated.” We are passionate
about telling children this important message. We want kids to know that they
are seen and loved by the community they call home. Once a month we throw
awesome birthday parties in elementary schools, celebrating every kid with a
birthday that month. We gather community volunteers to sit with them and tell
them face-to-face, “The day they were born was a BEAUTIFUL DAY!”
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are community volunteers who represent the best interests of abused and neglected children who are wards of the juvenile court. After being thoroughly screened and trained, a CASA researches the case, talks to the child and involved parties and professionals, advocates for needed services and timely decisions, and submits written recommendations to the court.
"It's about helping a child replace a life of hurt with one of hope." - CASA Volunteer
