Voices for Children/CASA
To give a child a CASA is to give them a voice, to give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world.
Voices for Children/CASA uses trained volunteers in our community to prevent or reduce the duration of foster care placement for abused and neglected children.
