April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month

Every year in April we observe Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month.  It is a time for us to show our support for child victims in our area and examine what more we can do to help raise awareness and rally support for this very important issue.  Here at CASA for the Highland Lakes Area part of our job is to organize citizens year-round, drawing attention to the need for everyone in our community to join the cause and support these children in some way.  This April, will you join our team?  You can be a superhero for a child in need and there are many ways to get involved.  You can become a CASA volunteer and advocate for a local child who has become a victim of abuse or neglect.  If this is something you want to learn more about, please contact our office today!  Even if you cannot be a child advocate, consider becoming involved by participating in one of these other ways:

Become a Foster Parent

Organize an Event for CASA – help us raise awareness and/or funds

Become a CASA Ambassador – Help spread the word about CASA and the need for volunteer advocates

Host a Training – provide a space for training our new volunteers or snacks/meals for a training event

Donate to our organization – VISA gift cards for children are always needed, as are monetary donations for our organization

So, this April, will you become a Superhero to a child in need???
