Better Together: Prevention Month 2024

Tuesday, Apr 30, 2024

This month is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Many of you have been given the opportunity to host and participate in local events and have heard about the growing need for prevention in our communities throughout the month.

No child deserves to experience harm, or to be torn from everything they know and love and placed into foster care. You can help!

Child Abuse Prevention Month is critical for raising awareness in our communities, but awareness itself is not enough. Children who are struggling through the child welfare system without an advocate need more than just awareness. They need action.

Maybe you are newly aware of the issues children in foster care face, or maybe you are already a member of the CASA community. Regardless of your role, we all have an important part to play in the lives of these vulnerable children. What will you do to go from awareness to action?

Speak up for a child who needs you: visit www.casaok.org to learn more and to complete the first step by completing the CASA volunteer application. CASA volunteers play a vital role in ensuring the safety, well-being, and permanency needs of children are met while they are involved in the foster care system.

Tell a friend about CASA: sit down with a friend you know would make an outstanding volunteer and tell them about your experiences with CASA and why you think they would be a great fit. Want help with that conversation? Reach out to jenny@casaok.org to schedule a coffee meeting with you and your guest.

Support CASA through an online donation: a donation to CASA for children is an investment in the future of our community. You can make a one time donation online at www.casaok.org.

Child abuse prevention and awareness are important every day. This month and beyond we encourage you to join us in supporting the CASA mission in whatever way you can.
