Northwest CASA is pleased to announce it has received a $13,000 grant from the United Way of Greater McHenry County on July 1, 2018. These funds will support the counseling, bi-lingual counseling, and advocacy services for survivors of sexual violence in McHenry County. The grant enables Northwest CASA to provide more counseling and help eliminate our wait list for services.
The United Way of Greater McHenry County awards annual grants to 30 local nonprofit partners by an application and review process. Funding requests are reviewed by a panel of community members each spring and awarded in July.
“We are so grateful to the generous donors and supporters throughout McHenry County who have made it possible for us to reinvest $1 million dollars in the 48 programs funded by our United Way,” said United Way Executive Director Carole Peters. “Northwest CASA is such an asset to our community and impacts so many of our residents.”
