Child Advocacy Services of the Big Horns received a grant from the Sheridan/Johnson Community Foundation that will go a long way toward funding growing needs in Johnson County. In the last year, the Johnson County CASA program has recruited nearly a dozen new volunteers and demand for visitation and exchange services are growing.
The Sheridan / Johnson Community Foundation distributed the $5,000 through their affiliation with the Wyoming Community Foundation. They assist in evaluating grant applications to the WYCF and have been very progressive in their processing of local grant applications since their inception in 1997.
Executive Director for Child Advocacy Services of the Bighorns Mike Duncan says the grant acceptance will be their pledge to the WYCF to continue to provide superior service to their clients.
The grant was awarded during the Child Advocacy Services annual board planning workshop last weekend.
