Happening April 27th, 2024
We are excited to invite you to participate in our first-ever “FORE YOUTH” golf tournament! This fun event will make a direct impact on thousands of youth in our community by raising funds for tutoring and to support foster and aged-out youth who are or who have been in foster care.
The mission of The Children’s Foundation of Las Vegas is to provide tutoring and support the unmet needs for children and young adults who are or have been in foster care in Clark County, Nevada.
Diversity & Equality Statement
Diversity & Equality Statement Our vision and mission mirror our key conviction that all individuals have a place and merit, decency, equity, and inclusivity. Our solidarity comes from our variety and we praise the obvious and undetectable characteristics that make every individual one of a kind, including race, sex, age, sexuality, capacity, religion, public starting point, sex personality, and different characters. We focus on adjusting our way of life and strategic approaches to be a guide of variety, value, consideration, and a place for all individuals.
For 40 years, the Foundation has been committed to making a difference in the lives of children who have been or are currently in foster care in Clark County, Nevada. Up until 2022, the Children’s Foundation of Las Vegas operated as the CASA Foundation. It was established in 1983 to promote and support the efforts of the Clark County Court Appointed Special Advocate Program and previously provided funding, volunteer recognition, and program assistance. The Foundation has updated its mission and continues to identify and provide funds for the unmet needs of children in foster care and the youth that have aged out of the foster care system in Clark County, Nevada.
Another critical need, vital to the future success of at-risk children in foster care, is education. The majority of foster children supported in our tutoring program have a major grade deficit. Our goal is to bring them to their current grade level. On average, students in foster care require 5.9 grade levels in math and in reading equivalent to 190 tutoring hours totaling $6,860. We have been very successful in changing the lives of these children in order for them to gain confidence in themselves moving forward in school. Partnering with the Tutoring Club, a local company that provides professional tutoring services throughout the Las Vegas valley, the Children’s Foundation of Las Vegas works to give each student the extra help they need to be successful academically. Our effective 10-year partnership with the Tutoring Club provides a team of highly qualified tutors, at cost-effective rates.
