Join us on #Giving Tuesday
November 29, 2022
Giving Tuesday is the Global Day of Generosity. One way to be a part of this worldwide movement is to support a cause you believe in. Child Advocates offers direct support for children with three unique programs here in Nevada County. CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, are well-trained and supportive advocates for foster youth in school, in court and in everyday life. Healthy Babies is a home-visitation program that helps provide stability and a strong foundation for infants and growing children. The Child Safety Puppeteers program is an educational outreach puppet performance that visits local elementary schools and teaches children how to recognize abuse, inappropriate touching, and bullying.
Today, we ask you to give a gift that will offer the promise of one supportive and caring adult for every child who has suffered severe abuse or neglect in Nevada County. A gift of a bright future where infants and mothers are cared for with a supportive team of well-trained home visitors. Or a gift to our youth that will give them the tools they need to find their voice and report abuse and bullying. You can help bring us closer to the day when every child in our county can receive the services and support needed to succeed.
Ways to Give
Give the Gift of a CASA
Children in the foster care system have complex lives and many have experienced deep trauma. But they are still undeniably children – vulnerable, scared. playful, curious – like all children. They need a kind caring adult in their corner. Donate today to help provide a CASA for every child in foster care in Nevada County.
Court Appointed Special Advocates – CASAs – are people just like you who believe that every child has the right to be treated with dignity, to be safe, and to thrive in the embrace of a loving family. Click the button for more information on how you can volunteer as a CASA in Nevada County.
