Community Partner Shout Out

Share this:

In a time when our economy has been hit hard by what seems to be a never ending pandemic we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever. That’s why we want to recognize the local small businesses that have stepped up to support our mission to provide quality advocacy for foster children so that they may thrive in a safe, permanent home as soon as possible. Each of these businesses work towards building a stronger Southwest Washington community in various ways and we’re proud to identify them as community partners.

School for the Deaf and the WA State School for the Blind as well as hosting yours truly for a Coffee with CASA event and displaying our information session bulletins.
