The CASA Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in June 1983 whose purpose is to promote and support child advocacy through the Clark County CASA Program.
In the course of their work, many CASA volunteers expressed concern over unmet needs that required financial assistance not available through public agency budgets. By forming a foundation, these volunteers hoped they could address these special needs.
The CASA Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of CASA volunteers and specialized professionals from the community. This balanced representation helps ensure that a variety of perspectives are available, and that a wide range of community resources are considered in meeting the needs of these children.
Your Assistance can give our Children a Future!
> Nine year old Tanya, drug-addicted at birth, has little hope of finding adoptive parents who will understand her special needs
> Seventeen year old Lewis, rejected by his stepmother, recently learned that his family moved to another state giving no forwarding address, leaving him in a group home
> Thirteen year old Brad, sexually abused and neglected, has been in 27 different homes. No wonder he’s fearful about being adopted
> Two and three year old Billy and Jenny have no knowledge of their natural parents, as they’ve been in foster care for most of their lives
> Seventeen year old Marie, emotionally immature due to long-term neglect, will soon face adult status without a high school diploma, job skills, parental support or independent living skills
