Fundraiser for the month of April!

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month.

CAASA is working with the Nevada Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Association to bring this excellent program to Humboldt County.

CASA programs throughout the United States now serve over 240,000 abused and neglected children through more than 900 programs nationwide.

Every day, child in Nevada are victimized through abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Often these children are removed from their home and placed into our juvenile court system. In 2009, Humboldt County had 199 reports of child abuse and neglect.

Our goal is to provide a CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child in the court system.

We are working with local Scentsy Consultant, Sharon Krupicka, to help us raise the money needed to implement a CASA in Humboldt County, and for CAASA to continue its work for sexual violence survivors and awareness!

Over the entire month of April, CAASA will be selling Scentsy Candles. If anyone would like to purchase Scensty for this wonderful cause, (and some excellent products!), please contact us!
