I am writing this review to let everyone know what good work CASA does !!! I have been a volunteer for over three years and have seen and helped so many young ones. With out CASA these kids would not have a voice in court. CASA Volunteers check up on the kids to make sure they have what they need in Foster Care and in school. CASA Volunteers make sure that the parents of these children know what to expect from DHS. We visit with the kids to find out what they want to happen in there cases. We make countless trips across the state to ensure that the children we are assigned to are safe. CASA makes a difference !!!!
