To acknowledge the commitment, time, and compassion of CASA Advocates in Kittitas County. CASA Advocates’ Day (May 18th) provides an opportunity to honor and thank CASA Advocates who work hard to ensure children and youth, who have been placed in foster care, as a result of experiencing abuse or neglect, have their voices heard every day. This day also gives our community the chance to better understand the critical role a CASA advocate plays in the lives of young people, and inspire others to contribute their time to support children who may be in/or at risk of child welfare involvement.

National Child Abuse Prevention Campaign

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each year more than 4,300 children in Washington State and about 33 in Kittitas County experience abuse or neglect, ushering them into the dependency court and foster care systems. A child in foster care, on average, will move into multiple homes and attend multiple schools. All this chaos and inconsistency has long-term effects. As a result, the children are increasingly exposed to child abuse and neglect, parental intimate partner violence at home and sexual violence.

Quilts for a Cause

Over the past five years, Debbie has sewn about 300 quilts donating many to local nonprofits and sending dozens to friends and relatives serving as a “warm hug” at a particularly sensitive time in their lives or to mark a sweet milestone.  

Please come by the Gard open to close (2-9 pm) to view Debbie Schmit’s beautiful quilts.  Proceeds from the quilt sale will be donated to Court Advocates for Children.
