PORTLAND, Ore. - Dec. 28, 2016 - PRLog -- Zapproved, a Portland, Oregon-based pioneer in developing cloud-based software for corporate legal departments, today presented CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties a check for $3000 to support its advocate training programs.

A CASA advocate is the tireless and passionate protector of a child who has been abused or neglected and is going through the trauma of the foster care system.

"Most people answer this call to service because they want to change the lives of children; what they don't realize is how much the work changes them. It deepens the core of who you are as a person." – Georgia McGinnis Roberts, CASA Program Manager.

"The dollars donated by Zapproved will help support the work of CASA for Children to meet the increasing need of children in foster care to have a volunteer advocate in the courtroom. We are honored to have the support from an agency that cares deeply about the children in our communities." – Betsy Stark Miller, CASA Executive Director.

"Zapproved is proud to support CASA and the work they do to look out for the best interests of the children in our foster care system," said Chris Bright, VP of Marketing for Zapproved. "This work is so meaningful and represents some of the best values that we have in the legal profession by giving voice to vulnerable children."
