April is Child Abuse Awareness month.
The white planter has a pinwheel for every child that is represented by a CASA advocate (96). The red planter shows how many children are still in need of a CASA advocate (48)
We all need to work together to prevent child abuse from happening
but until we can stop child abuse altogether, please support CASA as we strive to assist the children who have been abused or neglected, and give them a voice!
Welcome CASA supporters and volunteers!
CASA of Laramie County is a non-profit organization that trains community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system.
The mission of CASA of Laramie County is to provide a court-appointed voice for abused and neglected children-protecting their fundamental right to be safe, treated with dignity, and the opportunity to grow in a safe environment.
CASA began in Laramie County in August 2002 and has been serving children since July of 2003. Since CASA began in Laramie County, almost one-fourth of the abused and neglected children who have been through the court process are being served by a CASA volunteer. Currently, more than three-fourths of the children are being served.
CASA of Laramie County is a member in good standing with the National CASA Association. CASA of Laramie County is sponsored by the Division of Victims Services and United Way.
