In this episode of Vegas Business Spotlight, hosts Tim Knifton and Marco Salinas sit down with Jenifer Page, the President of Champions for CASA. Jenifer shares her inspiring journey from a successful corporate career to dedicating her time and passion to helping foster children in Southern Nevada.
With over 3,200 children living in foster care in the region, Jenifer sheds light on the critical need for CASA volunteers. CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, aims to provide a voice for abused and neglected children within the child welfare system. Jenifer explains that every child in foster care should ideally be assigned a CASA volunteer, but unfortunately, there are currently only 300 volunteers available, leaving many children underserved.
Through Champions for CASA, Jenifer and her team work tirelessly to raise awareness and recruit more volunteers. They collaborate with local businesses and community partners, organize tabling events, and engage in one-on-one conversations to spread the word about the transformative impact that CASA volunteers can make in a child’s life.
Jenifer shares a heartwarming success story of a young boy named “Mark”, whom she worked with as a CASA volunteer. Mark had experienced multiple foster placements and disrupted adoptions, causing him to lose hope. Jenifer’s dedication and support helped him find stability, education, and ultimately a loving family through adoption. She emphasizes the importance of providing these children with positive role models who can open their eyes to a world of possibilities.
Listeners are encouraged to consider becoming CASA volunteers or supporting Champions for CASA financially. Jenifer emphasizes that even spreading awareness about CASA and the dire need for volunteers can make a significant difference in the lives of vulnerable children, breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect.
Join Tim and Marco in this enlightening episode as they delve into the world of CASA and discover how individuals and businesses can contribute to changing the lives of foster children in Las Vegas.
