|Jewelry industry gives CASA $10,000 grant|
CASA of Northeast Louisiana received a $10,000 grant from Jewelers for Children to expand volunteer-based advocacy services for abused and neglected children in the 11-parish region.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates program, which serves abused and neglected children throughout the United States.
According to Erin Stokes, CASA of Northeast Louisiana's public relations coordinator, the grant will allow the organization to serve more children in the region. The money will be used to train more volunteers to become advocates for abused and neglected children in northeast Louisiana.
Jewelers for Children is the leading charity of the U.S. jewelry industry. Since 2003, Jewelers for Children has funded advocacy groups for abused and neglected children in more than 300 communities nationwide. More than 70 CASA programs will receive funds from the $1-million national grant by Jewelers for Children. Since 1999, the charitable organization has invested $28 million in special programs to reach children who have been affected by illness or life-threatening abuse or neglect.
The grants are being awarded through the National CASA Association, which provides leadership services to about 900 state and local offices that work to assist abused and neglected children.
CASA of Northeast Louisiana was formed in Monroe in 1999. Since that time, the organization has expanded to serve 11 parishes with five different office locations. More than 200 community volunteers work with CASA as advocates for some 400 local children.
Currently, there are 50 children in need of an advocate. Those who are interested in becoming a CASA volunteer for one of the children should contact Anna Thomas at 398-0945, or visit CASA's website at www.cfcfnela.org.
