FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles and Washington DC—Kidsave, an organization that advocates for and supports the adoption of older, harder-to-place children growing up in orphanages and foster care, announces the appointment of Wrenn Chais, attorney and Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), to Kidsave’s Board of Trustees.
“We are pleased to welcome Wrenn Chais, a true advocate for children, to our Board,” said CEO and Co-Founder Randi Thompson. “Not only is Wrenn an accomplished attorney with an outstanding track record, but she has also spent countless hours as a CASA ensuring that foster kids who have been neglected or abused have a voice in court and have a real shot at future success. She’s even served as a CASA for a foster youth in our Weekend Miracles Program.”
Chais is a successful litigator. Since 1989 she has consistently been engaged in securities-related litigation. Chais has tried matters in arbitration tribunals and administrative, state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate level. She’s also engaged in the defense of numerous class actions, derivative actions, and SEC investigations and proceedings.
Among her recent representations, Chais has petitioned the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit to review an order of the SEC barring auditors from appearing or practicing. She’s represented an officer of a publicly- traded high-tech company in connection with allegations of backdating stock options. She’s also represented the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of a publicly-traded high-tech company in connection with their investigation of potential violation of securities laws and breach of fiduciary duties.
“I look forward to bringing my experience in law and in advocacy for children to Kidsave,” says Chais. “It’s an honor to help serve kids who need families globally and it is my hope that my work in this role will help create change so more kids can grow up in families and connected to caring, loving adults.”
Kidsave, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity, helps older children and teens living in U.S. residential facilities, foster homes, group homes, and orphanages overseas, find loving parents and lifelong mentors through our unique Family Visit Model. Kidsave works with governments and communities worldwide to see that no orphan or foster child is forgotten, and every child grows up in a family with love and hope for a successful future.
