At Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills—a Von Housen dealer—we believe the path to making the world a better place begins in your own backyard. As a full-service dealership, we value our customers, but also show our support for our fellow community members by regularly donating to local charities. These organizations, such as Child Advocates of Placer County, offer much-needed services to residents of Folsom, Gold River, and nearby areas. And we’re glad to be a partner in their progress!

About Child Advocates of Placer County

In Placer County, nearly 800 children are abused or neglected on a yearly basis, while over 200 of those children are removed from their households. Child Advocates of Placer County, a non-profit organization, works to lower those numbers through the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program for the Placer County Juvenile Dependency Court.

From 2014-2015, CASA volunteers and Mentors were appointed to 447 foster children and 101 at-risk and former foster youths. CASA volunteers and Mentors work closely with children, helping them succeed while avoiding the juvenile justice system and risky behaviors. CASA Mentors also assist the parents of at-risk children, and offer guidance on how to build a happier, more stable home.

Making a Positive Impact

The Von Housen Group is built on a legacy of philanthropy. Our goal is, and has always been, to be a reliable dealership, as well as a dedicated contributor to the community. We at Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills happily support local charities in their efforts to serve Placer County! Our aim to help make a difference in as many areas as possible, from child care and development, to local education, to healthcare research. Here are a few other local charities we support:

  • American Cancer Society

  • Carmichael Recreation and Park District

  • And many more!
