2012 Wenatchee Casa Rock n’ Rowl for Kids
I’d like to ask you, my friends and, if you’re up to it, your friends in donating any amount you’d like to support this great organization.
In 1977, Seattle Superior Court Judge David Soukup became concerned that he was not being given enough pertinent information in cases involving abused and neglected children. To alleviate this problem, Judge Soukup formed a program comprised of community volunteers that would investigate and present the children’s best interests in court to assist him in making informed decisions. He put out a call for volunteers and received 50 responses. Within the first year of this program, 110 people were trained and ultimately represented 498 children in 376 dependency cases. Today there are more than 68,000 advocates serving in 1,018 programs nationwide.
