GO BLUE and        
NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

April is Child Abuse Prevention month, and you can show your support for the maltreated children in our communities by Going Blue at your participating place of business, school or other organization on Friday, April 15th. 

Donate $5 to CASA SHaW to wear blue (jeans, shirts, ties, etc.) to let kids in care know they are remembered. It's another way to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect in our community.

For more information and tools to get started contact us today at info@casashaw.org to receive your promotional package to share with colleagues and friends in support of this event or:

ARE YOU READY TO GO BLUE for CASA 





It takes a community.  

Anytime a child is abused or neglected, it’s a tragedy – one that all too often scars victims for a lifetime. 

National Child Abuse Prevention Month– is a time when caring people go the extra mile to raise awareness of the terrible toll that abuse and neglect take on young lives and to remind our community that we all have a part to play in identifying and preventing such harm. At CASA SHaW, we are preventing abuse and neglect every month of the year.

Studies have shown that children who have suffered abuse or neglect are more likely to struggle in school, have run-ins with law enforcement, experience homelessness or abuse drugs or alcohol. Research also shows that abused children are more apt to grow up to abuse their own kids.

At CASA SHaW, we help abused and neglected children heal so they can live happier, safer lives. Our CASA volunteers – court-appointed special advocates – make sure kids don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service systems or languish in unsupportive foster homes. CASA volunteers stay with children until their court case is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.
