Read about the impact of donor support on the lives of foster kids

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your ongoing support of children and Douglas County CASA! We are so excited to be getting out into the community more over the past quarter. We have ventured out to the Farmers Market and have presented to various groups interested in learning more about CASA and the amazing work of our volunteers.

We continue to recruit and train new volunteers and have averaged three new applications each month this year to date. We hope to increase that number throughout the rest of the year as we recruit to reach our maximum capacity.

It has been a busy quarter with a new email system, new databases, a new website, and updating volunteer files in preparation for our program audit on Aug 11th. All of this as we continue to work with our volunteers to advocate for children and families. Our biggest biggest focus has been ensuring the children we serve get access to summer enrichment activities and tutoring due to the challenging school year all students experienced.

We hope this newsletter provides you with a summary of what's happening at CASA and highlights some of the amazing work of our volunteers.

Thank you,

Erick Vaughn, Executive Director
