Imagine being a child with an unstable home life. Imagine being brought to court as adults decide your fate. Now imagine if you had your very own adult, who is not your parent, making sure your voice is heard and that your well-being is prioritized. That’s what court-appointed special advocates, or CASAs, do.
Our first donation as a company was to CASA of Monroe County, and we have decided to help them out again. CASAs do very important work behind the scenes of court cases where children are involved. These volunteers represent child victims in juvenile cases of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. They work with the child throughout the process so the child has stability and representation. They truly are advocates, and we are so lucky to have them as part of our community!
When we started Inkblot, one goal was to give back to our amazing community. Each quarter, we donate to a local organization, and this past quarter, we have chosen to thank CASA of Monroe County. They do such important work in our community, and we’re honored to be able to donate to their cause.
If you find yourself in the position to give, consider CASA or the many other worthy organizations in your community.
