Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The CASA Foundation was established in June 1983 to promote and support the efforts of the Clark County CASA Program by providing fundraising, volunteer recognition, program assistance, and public relations activities. Over the years, the CASA Foundation has added another component to its mission, and that is to address the children’s special and other needs not provided for through other means. This includes items such as medical needs, transportation costs for visits with family members, summer camp, sports, music lessons, and tutoring. The CASA Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of children in foster care in Southern Nevada.

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Supporting the CASA Program

In furtherance of our mission, we support the CASA Program in many ways and in particular by aiding in the recruitment and retention of volunteers. Through our community connections, the Program is able to seek out volunteers within the community and build relationships that provide opportunities for volunteers and their CASA kids. Additionally, we commit to funding for activities that aid in the retention of volunteers including training and recognition.

The CASA Foundation works in partnership with the Eighth Judicial District Court-CASA Program to support and promote the recruitment, training, retention, and recognition of CASA volunteers in the following ways:

Help increase community awareness of the mission of the CASA Program.
Promote and fund marketing & public relations campaigns.
Sponsor monthly retention events for CASA volunteers.
Sponsor an annual retreat and recognition ceremony.
Provide support and funding for volunteers to participate in local and statewide training, as well as to attend the annual National CASA/GAL Conference.
Build collaborative and strategic partnerships in the local community.
Provide funding for items needed for recruitment, training, retention, and recognition activities.

The organization raises money directly with the Las Vegas community and applies for grants and additional funding/sponsorships for specific projects such as Back to School, Graduation and Angel Tree. The CASA Foundation assists in the recruitment, recognition, and retention of volunteers in the CASA Program to further the goal of achieving CASAs for all children in care.

The CASA Foundation recently provided graduation gift bags to 80 children worth $24,000 to assist young adults in their next phase of independent living.

The Foundation is preparing 1,600 Back to School Backpacks for children in care, filled with supplies, toys, socks and toiletries for our August 9th giveaway.

The Angel Tree program provides gifts for all children in care. In 2019, 3,300 children received Christmas gift bags.

In June 2020, 23 children were enrolled in tutoring, 12 were given funding to attend summer camp and 15 young adults received driver's licenses.
