CASA for Clermont Kids was awarded $10,000 by Insuring the Children to expand their child advocacy program.
CASA for Clermont Kids is a non-profit agency that advocates for the best interests of abused, neglected and dependent children who have been introduced into Clermont County Juvenile Court. CASA recruits and trains community involved citizens to volunteer as Guardians Ad Litem who independently work in the court system to serve as the child’s advocate and court representative.
Insuring the Children is a partnership of individuals in the life, health, title and property/casualty insurance industry and those associated with the business. Insuring the Children provides financial and political support to social service agencies that deal with the emotional care and medical treatment of abused and neglected children. The members and donors, who include individuals, agencies and entire insurance organizations, make tax-deductible gifts to the organization. When their gifts are combined, Insuring the Children makes them count by evaluating grant requests from social service agencies to find out where they can make the biggest difference. Insuring the Children establishes ongoing financial and strategic relationships with these agencies to help them maximize their impact across Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
CASA for Clermont Kids is grateful for this gift and the support that we receive from the community. “Our program’s success can only be credited to the generous support that we receive from foundations like Insuring the Children and individuals in our community who allow our program to thrive and, therefore, achieve our mission,” states CASA Executive Director Alison Royalty.
For community involved citizens who wish to be the voice for a child within the court, you can make application for our next training.
