United Way looks to our community to support the work of several local human service organizations. On behalf of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lincoln County, thank you to our community for your generosity and thank you United
Way of Benton and Lincoln Counties for advocating on behalf of the network of nonprofit services that act as a safety net for so many individuals in our community.
As a United Way recipient, CASA works to advocate for children in foster care who have been abused or neglected. Our mission is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in court. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
35 CASA volunteers provided over 10,000 hours of service with a value to Lincoln County of over $250,000 in 2012 with an emphasis on investigating, advocating and reporting to the Court on behalf of children who have been removed from their homes and placed in state care.
We are so grateful to our local CASA volunteers and for the contributors to United Way. Both have made a huge difference in the lives of children in foster care – and will result in a better community for us all.
