CHILD ADVOCATES of Northeast Oklahoma

Child Advocates of Northeast Oklahoma

It is difficult to imagine what life must be like for an abused or neglected child. It is even more difficult to admit that child abuse or neglect is a problem in our area.  Many of us would like to believe that it just doesn’t happen here, but it does.

Imagine children in our communities:

  • Living in places where violence is the rule rather than the exception;
  • Watching their parents slowly killing themselves with drugs or alcohol;
  • Living in active methamphetamine labs;
  • Being exposed to pornography or adult situations;
  • Merely existing – eating food you and I wouldn’t touch, rarely attending school, and deprived of regular medical attention; and/or
  • Raising themselves with little or no parental supervision or guidance.
Statistics indicate that without intervention by a caring adult, like a CASA Volunteer, 53 percent of these children will become juvenile delinquents.  As adults, they are 38 percent more likely to become violent criminals.  CASA volunteers can turn the page and rewrite the story for a vulnerable child.  You can make a difference in the life of a child.
