🌟Volunteer Spotlight🌟

Susan is a dedicated CASA volunteer, and we are so lucky to have her! When looking for a volunteer opportunity, Susan wanted something that would be fulfilling, challenging, and help the community. She loves that CASA is all about teamwork and collaboration and that she gets to be another person advocating for the children in the system. When asked about the best advise she has been given, Susan said “Life is about love, forgiveness, and gratitude.” She has been living by that philosophy since. 

We are so thankful for all that Susan brings to the CASA/GAL organization. Thank you, Susan, for all of the love and support you bring to the table!

Child welfare laws are so important to keep up with. It not only can laws affect us as an organization, but it affects the children we serve.

When our new CASA advocates go through their 30 hours of training, we cover a wide range of topics with them. An important topic we talk about is the 7 Cs of resilience. 

▪️Competence: making sure kids develop skills that help make them feel competent. Sometimes a tough task is good to help build those skills. 

▪️Confidence: helping make sure that you build up this confidence will give them the momentum to think for themselves and deal with challenges 

▪️Connection: connecting with peers, their school, and others in the community can help give them a better sense of security. 

▪️Character: making sure they understand the difference between right and wrong and can understand what side they want to stand on. 

▪️Contribution: giving them the knowledge that contributing can help make them feel good and can help them understand that they also have help if they need it. 

▪️Coping: when they have other ways to handle their emotions, they are significantly less likely to turn to dangerous things. 

▪️Control: having responsibility and an understanding of respect can help them gain control over their lives and the choices they make. 

Building up resilience in kids helps build resilience in future adults entering the community. Reach out if you want some more information on the 7 Cs.

Today we are spotlighting Samantha for her love of the CASA program. 

Samantha has a special connection to the CASA/GAL program because her mom was a CASA #advocate while Samantha was growing up. She was able to see it from a child’s perspective and develop a friendship that felt like a sibling. When she made the move to Bozeman, she was ready to take that step to be a CASA advocate herself. We are so thankful for her passion behind the program. 

Thank you Samantha for all of your dedication and heard work! You have a heart of gold 💛

We value and appreciate the foster parents in the #gallatinvalley and around the country! It is a tiring job to take on and support from the community and loved ones is a must. 

If you know a foster family, here are some tips on how to help and support them🫶🏼
