The Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club recently awarded CASA of El Dorado County a $4,000 grant to help implement their Into the Future Project. The grant includes $2,000 from the local Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club and a matching grant from the Regional Rotary Organization.

The purpose of the Into the Future Project is to provide teens who are part of the court system with the tools, enrichment and support needed for them to be able to transition out of the court system successfully. Currently, the court has no financial support available for transitional programs for incarcerated or probation youth.

CASA will work closely with the new Juvenile Treatment Center staff in establishing the best practices for helping teens to transition into adulthood with the help of CASA advocacy and support.

CASA of El Dorado, especially the South Lake Tahoe office, is deeply appreciative of the support and partnership with the Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club in helping our teens have the tools needed to become productive adults in our community.
