The mission of CASA Jefferson has always been to help foster children find permanency or, as we like to say, their “forever family.” For children who cannot be reunited with their biological families, adoption is a fantastic solution that provides the loving, safe, permanent home all children deserve.
CASA Jefferson celebrates these milestones in our children’s lives through CASA Comforts, a project which gives handmade and embroidered blankets to children on the day of their adoption. Each year, we give away about 80 blankets to children each monogrammed with the child’s (sometimes new) name. After all, what better way to celebrate the beginning of a new “forever family” than through a warm blanket stitched with love!
