FOUNDATION OF LAS VEGAS
Across America – and here
in Clark County – all children deserve a home
with loving people to care for them.

was presented with her own

wherever she lives.
About CASA Foundation
The CASA Foundation of Las Vegas was established in 1983 to promote and support the efforts of the Clark County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program. The CASA Foundation provides fundraising, volunteer recognition, program assistance, and public relations activities as the CASA program recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for individual foster children. Over the years, the CASA Foundation of Las Vegas has added another component to this mission and that is to provide funds for foster children’s “unmet” needs. This includes support for medical needs, transportation costs for family visits to extended family members, summer camps, sports, music and art lessons, school-related activities, and tutoring. The CASA Foundation of Las Vegas is committed to making a difference in the lives of children in foster care in Southern Nevada.
Why work with a CASA program?
Thousands of children need tutoring in order to keep up with the often overwhelming challenge of today’s schools.
Arts & Music
Through the Arts and through Music, viciously-abused children are able to come out of their shells and express their emotions – to build their confidence and sense of self-worth.
Orin & Brenda
Orin and his sister Brenda came to Las Vegas from New Jersey when they were very young. Growing up in a fast paced city with parents struggling with drug addiction resulted in a number of stays at Child Haven and into the foster care system.
Yovanna was an excellent student entering her senior year of high school. The move to her new foster home meant taking the bus and doing a transfer to get to the closest library.
CASA Foundation was established to support the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program and to identify and fund the individual needs of abused and neglected children in foster care in Clark County.
