We could not be more thrilled or thankful to announce that Yavapai CASA for Kids was the recipient of more than $8,000 from 100 Men Who Care.
In 2019, a group of individuals came together with a vision of supporting their communities in Northern Arizona. They saw a need to help these communities build back and ease some of the suffering that we see so much of in today’s world. Today, 100 Men Who Care strives to support their communities by raising awareness and funds for local non-profits. To do this, 100 Men hold quarterly events where three organizations are invited to present their causes. The attendees then vote for the non-profit they find to be most inspiring.
Earlier this year we received an invitation to present Yavapai CASA for Kids’ mission at 100 Men’s final 2022 quarterly event. To be asked to present our mission next to two organizations, Teen’s Closet and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, that also work to support children in need was humbling. What is even more humbling was that, earlier this month, we were chosen as the winner. Yavapai CASA for Kids received over $8,000 from 100 Men Who Care. Mona Stephens, our Development Director and presenter that evening, says, “To be in a room with so many benevolent men, men who all have a commitment to bettering the community, was an honor. We are so grateful to have received these funds, and as we look at making improvements to our Barbara Polk Family Visitation Center, this win could not have come at a better time.”
Yavapai CASA for Kids is ever so grateful to 100 Men Who Care. They have made such an impact on the foundation and lives of foster youth in Yavapai County. We want to thank them for being a hero to local foster children and for believing that children are the future.
