Celebrating 90 Years with $90 Donations: Paducah Child Watch Children's Advocacy Center's CASA Program

March 2017

To celebrate our 90th Anniversary, each team member was given $90 to donate to the charity of their choice. For Sheila Martin's $90 Charity of Choice, she has selected the Paducah Child Watch Children's Advocacy Center's CASA Program.

The Child Watch CAC has specialized in working with child abuse victims since 1984; and we have made serving children our only priority. It is the goal of our CAC to reduce trauma to child abuse victims in our region by providing a warm, comfortable, child friendly, home-like environment that is a physically and psychologically safe place for child abuse victims. All services are provided FREE of charge to clients.

The CASA Program provides court appointed advocates for abused and neglected children. Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 933 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.

The CASA Program is one of the many services provided to our area by the Paducah Child Watch Children's Advocacy Program. If you would like to donate you can mail donation directly to:
