Those who work with our youngest victims in Central Oregon are reminding the public of everyone's role in helping kids. You may have noticed the "Raise Me Up" flags around Central Oregon. It's part of an awareness campaign in April. Pam Fortier works with children through the 'Court Appointed Special Advocate' Program” or CASA, and says they are facing a 20% budget cut; yet the need is greater than ever:   “The cases are going up. Families that were already at risk and then you put the stressors on them with unemployment or homelessness, there's a crossing point and then we have more families coming in to care." Last year, Central Oregon saw more than 2200 reports of child abuse. CASA of Central Oregon has a fundraiser this coming weekend: it's a run and walk called "Light of Hope" at Riverbend Park in Bend. The 4th annual "Light of Hope" run/walk is on Sunday, April 17th at 9 a.m.
