CASA for York County
$10,000.00

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.   


Blue VAlley Community Action - york Food pantry
$10,000.00

We are grateful for the support and financial contributions that allows BVCA to serve throughout the year.


LINCOLN Arts Council upstart arts engagement program
$10,000.00

UpstArt is the Lincoln Arts Council’s flagship education program, bringing the arts into over a dozen schools, including the Pathfinder Program located in the Lancaster County Youth Services Center. In partnership with local art, music, theatre and dance artist-educators/organizations we personalize school residencies to enhance learning in both general education classrooms, as well as in art and music specialist’s classrooms.  

Upstart is built around pairing classroom teachers with artists and musicians to design a residency. Where possible, the Teaching Artist residencies follow a three-year trajectory, following the same students across grades, building on what they learn. upstArt brings enriching art opportunities to over 2,500 Lincoln children to empower a diverse group of youth to channel their creativity, build their confidence and connect with others.
