Donna Coleman serves as the President of the Children's Advocacy Alliance in Clark County, Nevada, which is a voluntary position for this nonprofit organization that performs community outreach, advocates for the passage of child-friendly legislation, and prepares an annual "report card" on legislators and children each year. This agency raised over $1.1 million to build and furnish the Children's Advocacy Building in Las Vegas, which houses the Child Advocacy Center. Victim sensitive interviews of sexually abused children occur in this setting. The Alliance also founded the Diligent Search Center in the Clark County Court Building, which searches for relatives of children living in foster care who may be placement options. Ms. Coleman also serves as co-chair of the Committee for the Protection of Children, as appointed by Governor Guinn. This Committee distributes funds to agencies involved in child abuse prevention projects. Ms. Coleman also is a Western State Leader for the Child Welfare League of America and has been asked by the League to represent Nevada in setting a national legislative agenda for children's issues. Donna Coleman, an enthusiastic, tireless advocate on behalf of children, takes the lead on many projects and injects her energy and persistence into others thus assuring their implementation. Always willing to confront a child welfare issue head-on, Ms. Coleman does not rest until a satisfactory resolution is achieved. The children of Nevada live better because Donna Coleman's home is here.
