Recognizing the many unique stressors this pandemic is placing on the children we serve and the families caring for them, CASA for Clermont Kids Volunteers are participating in something we call the Focused Five. For the next 5 weeks our volunteers are stepping up contact with kids and families from monthly contact to weekly contact.
We are checking to see how our kids are learning, how they are feeling and how their needs are being met. We are checking with caregivers to see if they have new needs or new worries as a result of the pandemic. We will do our best to connect our kids and families to resources.
We continue to attend court hearings by phone and we continue advocating across disrupted systems for our kids safety, health and education. We are taking new neglect and abuse cases during this time. Part of our mission is to be always available trusted adults during difficult times and these are extraordinarily difficult times for so many. CASA for Clermont Kids Volunteers are answering the call for kids in need. #inthistogetherohio #stayhomeohio #covid19ohioready #ohio #childabusepreventionmonth #CAPM #stopchildabuse
