Every cent, every dollar sent to CASA makes a difference in the lives of hurting children:
• It helps train a CASA volunteer to stand up for an abused child in court • Helps a neglected child find a “forever” adoptive home
• Helps a drug addicted baby visit safely with her parents • Helps a run away teen to break the cycle of abuse
100% of your donation dollars go directly to services for abused, neglected and high risk children.
