Light of Hope Walk/Run for CASA
Join us for Light of Hope Walk/Run to support CASA at Riverbend Park.
CASA refers to Court Appointed Special Advocate, a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in court. The CASA concept is based on the belief that a child has the right to a safe and permanent home. Research has shown that a child with a CASA volunteer spends less time in foster care, receives more services ordered by the court, experiences fewer placement changes, shows fewer at-risk behaviors, and is more successful in school.
