Piedmont CASA is now serving Fluvanna County
Piedmont CASA is expanding into Fluvanna, Madison, and Orange
Our goal is to complete this expansion in three years: 2023-2025. Phase 1 into Fluvanna is already underway. Phase 2 is Madison and Phase 3 is Orange.
The number of children we serve will jump approximately 45%
We already serve around 200 children each year. With this expansion, we will serve an additional 80-100 boys and girls.
Our footprint will increase 68%
We are currently serving 955 square miles. With this expansion, we will add close to 1,394 square miles, thus increasing our footprint to 2,349.
Your pledge will spread hope!
Join us in spreading hope to more kids in foster care! Your pledge will help ensure that by the end of 2025, all children and youth in foster care in these counties will have Piedmont CASA Volunteers and Bridges to Success Coaches.
In the 16th Judicial District, children, families, lawyers, judges, and service providers all move across county lines. Until now, Piedmont CASA Volunteers were limited to taking cases that originated in only four of its nine localities. This meant that children in Fluvanna who found themselves in foster care due to allegations of abuse and neglect had to go without the services and support of a CASA. It is for their sake that we are expanding our service area.
We began serving Fluvanna abuse and neglect cases in July 2023, with a goal of gradually increasing coverage to 100% by July 2024.
How to get involved
Nine localities are served by courts in the 16th Judicial District
Since 1995, Piedmont CASA has served children and youth in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. In 2013, we started providing CASA Volunteers for children in Louisa and Greene. In 2023, Piedmont CASA begins a phased roll out into Fluvanna, Madison and Orange - the only 16th District counties left unserved by CASA Volunteers. (The children of Culpeper and Goochland are being served by other CASAs.)
Fluvanna County is Phase One of our expansion, which begins in July 2023. Approximately 28,000 people live in Fluvanna, and it is projected to see a steady growth in population.
