Reviews for Anne Arundel County Casa, Inc. Court Appointed Special Advocates
After working with the Executive Director, it is easy to see her commitment along with the entire staff and volunteers to making a difference for children in need of guidance. Without this organization, children stuck in the court system could fall by the wayside and left to fend for themselves in unfortunate conditions.
