2020 Child Abuse Prevention Month

MAKING THE CHILDREN IN OUR AREA SAFER BY EDUCATING THE PUBLIC, STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS, AND EQUIPPING THE COMMUNITY FOR ACTION.

Washoe CASA’s Virtual Pinwheel Garden

April is Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month, a time to act collectively to raise awareness and empower people across the nation to play a role in making great
childhoods happen.  And our efforts to raise awareness and engagement and impact positive change this year are as vital as ever.

Make a donation to the Washoe CASA Foundation during the month of April and your name will be listed under one of our pinwheels. You can also make your gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one.

Throughout this crucial CAP Month, we’re reinforcing the message that “Everyone can make great childhoods happen—especially you, especially now!”  You don’t have to be a movie star or a professional athlete. . . all you need is a desire to make a difference.  There are several different ways that you can take small but significant steps to ensure the safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments that enable children, families, and entire communities to thrive…and you can too!

Equally important is recognizing that the time to act is now.  We understand that now is a very difficult time for everyone.   The outbreak of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has changed our world dramatically—and rapidly.  Although the risk to our children’s physical health from the outbreak itself appears
to be low,  the risk to our nation’s children for experiencing child abuse and neglect in times of extreme stress and uncertainty is actually quite high.

Help us help the children that we serve by donating today.  Any amount, no matter how small, will make a huge difference in the lives of children in our community.

You can use the Donation Button below to join our virtual pinwheel garden!

This will take you to donate to our James’ Special Day campaign, which allocates 100% of your donation to the children that we serve.
