A Logical Extension to Our Program's Work...

Window cords can pose a potential strangulation hazard to young children.  According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, corded window coverings are among the top five hidden hazards in American homes.

 

As part of its ongoing public information campaign to increase cord-safety awareness, WCSC regularly disseminates news and informational materials through the media and partnerships with various public and private organizations concerned with child safety, health and well-being.  The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) is a coalition of major U.S. manufacturers, importers and retailers of window coverings dedicated to educating consumers about window cord safety.  The Council does a great job of getting this information out to the general public, but the reality is that this type of information does not easily get to the families and foster parents of children who are involved in the child welfare system.   

 

Given that CASA Child Advocates regularly visit homes of parents, grandparents, other relative placements and foster parents’ homes of the children on the cases they serve, helping to share information about the dangers of hazardous window coverings is a simple extension of our CASA work that helps keep children safe from further harm. CASA Child Advocates have direct access to homes, children and families, where the WCSC may not be able to easily reach directly. 

 

In addition, CASA Child Advocates have a wide spread reach through their own personal networks as they represent individuals from all professions, socio-economic levels, geographic location, etc.  These are individuals who are very passionate about the safety of children and can further help spread the word out the dangers of faulty window coverings.

 

This campaign is a logical extension of CASA, the role of CASA Child Advocates, the access we as an organization have and the overall objectives all parties involved.  Implementing the National Window Covering Safety Council makes perfect sense.

 

Furthermore, the campaign couldn't be any easier to implement.  We provide you with a easy to use tool kit containing all you need to kick-off and maintain the campaign.  We even provide direct support to help your team get the ball rolling.
