Event Description

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month – a time when caring people go the extra mile to raise awareness of the terrible toll that abuse and neglect take on young lives and to remind our community that everyone can play a role in preventing such harm.

At CASA of Jefferson and Lewis Counties, our citizen volunteers are helping to prevent abuse and neglect every month of the year.

When children who have been abused or neglected grow up without a strong support system, without the focused help they need to heal, and without the guidance of those who know how to advocate for their every need, it’s not only their own lives that are shattered. Research shows that they will be much more likely to abuse their own kids one day. And so the cycle continues.

Every day in our community, children face abuse, neglect, or abandonment - not because they have committed any crime - but because their parents cannot or will not care for them. Often these children are confused and scared, lost in a maze of judges, attorneys, and social workers.

This is where CASA comes in.

It is time for our 23rd annual Pasta for CASA Dinner and Silent Auction. This year we are adding an Everyday Hero 5KFun Run/Walk and family activities before our traditional dinner and silent auction. It is our hope that by adding these events and utilizing a larger venue, we can further increase community support and awareness of CASA’s mission. Like CASA of Jefferson & Lewis Counties on Facebook for details, registration and sponsorship opportunities.
