Creating Better Future For Foster Children
The CASA Council of Mohave County is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that believes that foster children need and deserve what any child needs. We want to offer them the opportunity to play sports, take music, enjoy swimming or dance lessons. We try our best to get assistance if they fall behind in school.
We want them to go to summer camps like other children!
Unfortunately, through no fault on their part, foster children are often placed into circumstances where funds are not always available to help them get the opportunities they need. We want to offer them the childhood they are losing.
CASA COUNCIL of Mohave County
We support the foster children of Mohave county by providing funds to allow children to have access to various facilities.
These opportunities are funded through donations from caring and generous people just like you. All donations are tax-deductible.
Alyssa's foster care and adoption journey
Our Vice President, Alyssa Oubre, is not just a volunteer with our local CASA Council, she and her husband are also licensed foster parents who have so far fostered 10 children, two of which became lifelong members of their family through adoption. Their two adopted children, age 2 and 8, are regular participants at CASA Council events and love giving back to other children in foster care. Alyssa and her husband did not become foster parents with the intention of adopting; they simply hoped to provide a temporary home for children in need. However, two of those children needed a permanent, loving home, and they were overjoyed to fill that need. In a desire to continue giving back to the community, Alyssa joined the CASA Council in 2018 as a board member, and then became the Vice President in 2020. One of Alyssa’s favorite phrases rings true to CASA, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” Our “team” of volunteers work relentlessly to further the lives of children in foster care; children who were thrust into the world of uncertainty to no fault of their own. Children who need the continued love and support of our community.
