Advocating effectively during a pandemic
While its impact is universal, there is widespread evidence to show that the COVID-19 pandemic is hitting the most vulnerable among us the hardest. For children who have experienced abuse or neglect or for those who are at-risk of maltreatment, social isolation, and economic uncertainty brought on by COVID-19 have had far-reaching consequences.
For every child who has experienced abuse or neglect, having a caring, consistent adult—someone who listens, checks in, follows up, holds the system accountable, and puts the child’s best interests before all others’—can make all the difference. At this unprecedented time for children, CASA volunteers are more important than ever.
More than ever we need your support…
The financial challenge has greatly increased due to the effects of COVID-19 and the ability to serve all abused and neglected children in Kittitas County. Increased caseloads result in increased overall costs of serving abused and neglected children in our county.
