Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to CASA For Children of Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties
PORTLAND, Ore. — June 3, 2015 — Windermere Stellar recently presented a $2,500 donation at its Raleigh Hills branch to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a nonprofit organization located in Northeast Portland, Ore. CASA trains volunteers to advocate for the health, safety, and well-being of children in foster care who have been abused or neglected in the Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia counties.
CASA will use the funding to support two new special programs — Fostering Futures and Finding Families, which both focus on giving teens a better chance at a stable adult life. Fostering Futures teaches volunteers strategies and skills to help teens imagine and plan for their future. Finding Families searches nationwide for relatives and extended families of teens, and then makes contact with them in hopes of bringing them together.
Windermere Stellar has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income families and giving to the community. In addition to helping CASA For Children of Multnomah and Washington Counties, Windermere Stellar associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation — a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2.5 million to programs that support low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
