Child Advocates of Placer County

Each month Big Valley Mortgage donates to Child Advocates of Placer County.

Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.

CASA of Placer County works to prevent abused, neglected, and abandoned children from becoming lost in the Juvenile Dependency system, finding them safe, permanent homes as soon as possible.

Big Valley Mortgage’s donations support recruiting and training volunteer advocates.
