CASA Receives PSC Building Community Fund Grant

CASA of the South Plains was awarded a grant in the amount of $5,000 for Volunteer Training/Recruiting. This project was funded in part by a grant from the PSC Building Community Fund of the Community Foundation of West Texas. This grant will benefit the children and communities served by CASA as the funds will be utilized to support efforts aimed at increasing the number of CASA Volunteers in 2019. CASA Volunteers play a critical role in the life of children in the foster care system. A CASA, or a Court Appointed Special Advocate, is an individual who helps a child in foster care navigate the child welfare system, while working to ensure their needs are met and to help find a safe, permanent home. Parkhill, Smith and Cooper, Inc. (PSC) created the PSC Building Community Fund with the following purpose and principles in mind:

· Enhance their awareness of community needs

· Invest in making their community more vibrant

· Reinforce their responsibility to be corporate stewards in their communities

· Share their Time-Talent-Treasure

· Establish PSC as a “community leader”

· Encourage recruiting and retention for PSC and their profession

· Recognize that giving back is PSC’s expression of gratitude

“Our organization is extremely thankful to Parkhill, Smith and Cooper, Inc. and the Community Foundation of West Texas. This grant will help facilitate the development and implementation of CASA Volunteer recruitment campaigns which will allow more children in foster care in the communities served by CASA to receive the voice of a CASA Volunteer to represent their best interest,” said Jaclyn Morris, Executive Director for CASA of the South Plains.
