#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
It is especially crucial at this time that youth in foster care have someone they trust in their corner who ensures their needs are met. The fears and anxieties provoked by this outbreak and time of uncertainty can be compounded for children who have also experienced trauma. Although our staff is working remotely and our CASAs are not able to meet with youth in person, we remain operational and our CASAs continue to provide unparalleled advocacy through weekly video/digital check-ins with youth and continuing to write court reports and contact logs.
When you donate to CASA of Ventura County, you are investing in our children, our community, and ultimately, our future. Your gift provides us with the resources to continue our work and the work of our volunteers to advocate for foster youth in Ventura County, even in these challenging times.
