In 2020, the child population of El Dorado County was 33,830 children aged 0 to 17 years old. It was also found that of those children, about 62 per every 1,000 kids reported some form of abuse or neglect. Because children are young and vulnerable, they need the help of other adults to advocate for their safety and needs.
Child Advocates of El Dorado County was created with a mission to step up to the plate and advocate for and empower “the abused, neglected, and at-risk youth in our community by providing court-appointed volunteers who speak up for the needs of children and make a positive impact in their lives.” Through their Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, they have been able to provide more services to help children of abuse and neglect recover, have reduced the team these types of children spend in foster care, and have reduced the likelihood of children reentering the system.
At VWB Insurance, we have a passion for helping the children in our community as they depend on adults like us to keep them safe and help guide them in life. To do that, we are going to be donating $25 on your behalf to Child Advocates of El Dorado County for every recommendation you make to our agency for a no-obligation quote. With your help, the kids in our community can feel more supported than ever!
