Same Mission. New Name: Advocates for Children of Rural Nevada
Formerly operating as Pioneer Territory CASA*, Inc. from 2010-2022, Advocates for Children of Rural Nevada continues into its 14th year with the same mission: to support and promote volunteer, court-appointed, guardian ad litem who are Advocates for Children of Rural Nevada - so that every abused or neglected child in our area can be safe, have a permanent home and have the opportunity to thrive. We continue to operate as the same IRS 501(c)(3) designated non-profit organization as founded in 2010.
Advocates for Children of Rural Nevada is not associated or affiliated with National CASA/GAL Association for Children. As such, we are able to better focus on the unique needs of foster children located in the rural Nevada communities we serve, while tailoring our Advocate training course materials to better align with our constituent localities and their specific demographics, social attributes and special needs.
Same mission. Same organization. New name!
