From our Executive Director/CEO

As our community shook off the after-effects of the devastating pandemic, CASA adapted methodologies of recruiting volunteers and serving children. Our assigned children’s case histories seemed to be overall more horrific, resulting in a greater need for CASA’s support. Extended families, with limited financial means, filled in as temporary placements for children, resulting in an increased need for assistance with food and other basic necessities for children. CASA staff, board, volunteers, and donors responded to meet each and every need. We pledge to continue that trend in 2024.
