BAM announces recipient of 2016 Public Service Project
BAM is excited to announce the recipient of our 2016 Public Service project winner, CASA of Yellowstone County.
CASA of Yellowstone County (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a group of community volunteers who speak up for abused and neglected children in Yellowstone County. The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers are appointed by the courts to gather accurate and complete information about the child’s circumstances, serve as the child’s advocate in all facets of the child protection system, and make objective recommendations in the best interest of the child. CASA’s advocacy is done solely through the efforts of volunteers. There are hundreds of children right here in Yellowstone County that need a CASA volunteer and don’t have one.
“In choosing a recipient for this year’s project, the need at CASA was very clear to us,” said Cathy Grider, BAM President. “We are excited to help them reach more members of our community who may be interested in becoming a CASA volunteer.”
BAM members and guests will provide FREE marketing and PR services for an entire year, to help raise awareness of the need for volunteers at CASA of Yellowstone County.
