In honor of Tesha's recent buyer, Chuck Perigo, we are donating $777 to CASA Clark County. Chuck and his family have experienced first hand how invaluable this program is, and wanted to help CASA in return. Thank you, Chuck, for giving us this opportunity to bless CASA, and for trusting Giving Group Realty with your home purchase.
About CASA Clark County.
CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate for children, is an organization dedicated to ensuring children who have entered into the legal system due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment have the representation needed to find safe homes. All CASA volunteer advocates are highly trained so they can best advocate for their represented child within the legal system, helping that child end up in a loving and safe environment.
"Volunteers are asked to commit to at least 2 years with the program so they can provide consistency for the child and stay with the case until the child is with returned safely to their parents or placed in a safe, permanent home. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives...Our mission is to provide quality advocacy in the best interest of each child in dependency and support permanency in a timely manner served by highly-trained volunteer advocates so the children we represent may thrive in a safe, permanent home as soon as possible." -casaclarkcounty.org
"In 1977, a Seattle juvenile court judge concerned about making drastic decisions with insufficient information conceived the idea of citizen volunteers speaking up for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom. The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) developed guidelines to help the juvenile justice system protect the child’s right to a safe, permanent family. The committee coined the umbrella term “Court Appointed Special Advocate” – CASA – denoting any volunteer following a clearly defined role as a friend of the court."
