Herbein Hero – CASA of BERKS COUNTY
Herbein is pleased to announce CASA of Berks County (Court appointed Special Advocates for children) as the second recipient of the 2019 Herbein Community Heroes Award for the donation amount of $1,000 (second quarter).
The mission of CASA of Berks County is to provide a competent, responsible, and compassionate court-appointed community volunteer to advocate for each child who faces abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment; our goal, to restore their well-being and ensure the eminent right to a safe, nurturing, and permanent home. We envision a safe and positive future for all children facing abuse and neglect to break the cycle through the provision of support to become healthy, empowered adults.
Each year over 100 children in Berks County are in need of a CASA volunteer advocate. The award money will be used to support volunteer recruitment and training to meet this urgent need.
Thank you to CASA of Berks County for all that you do! Visit their website for additional details.
