The funds will support CASA for Children’s advocate volunteer training programs
Zapproved, a pioneer in developing cloud-based software for corporate legal departments, today presented CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties a check for $2500 to support its advocate training programs.
A CASA advocate is the tireless and passionate protector of a child who has been abused or neglected and is going through the trauma of the foster care system.
“In an overburdened child welfare system, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are granted authority by the court, to advocate on behalf of children in foster care to help ensure a child’s critical needs and interests are considered by the court,” said Betsy Stark Miller, Executive Director at CASA for Children. “Zapproved’s support allows us to train the citizen volunteers (CASAs) who serve as a voice for foster children in need.”
“We are proud to support CASA in helping them take up the cause for vulnerable children in our foster care system,” said Chris Bright, VP of Marketing for Zapproved. “As a member of the community supporting the justice system we wanted to make a contribution on behalf of those who have precious few voices on their side.”
