CASA for Clermont Kids was awarded $500 by UC Clermont College during the Hilltop Hike for Scholarships on Saturday, Sept. 14.
Sixty-six people signed up to support “Team CASA.” As a result, CASA was awarded $500 from UC Clermont for the largest team participation.
The hike was followed by a picnic, music, and craft projects for the children. UC plans to present this as an annual event so plan to join CASA for Clermont Kids next year for this great family event.
CASA for Clermont Kids is a non-profit agency that advocates for the best interests of abused, neglected and dependent children who have been introduced into Clermont County Juvenile Court.
CASA recruits and trains community involved citizens to volunteer as Guardians Ad Litem who independently work in the court system to serve as the child’s advocate and court representative.
For community involved citizens who wish to be the voice for a child within the court, you can make application for our year round training. For more information on how to become an advocate contact Jeannie Helsel at Jeannie@casaforclermontkids.org or (513) 732-7160.
