Ray of Hope

The 4th Annual Ray of Hope Breakfast, to benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocates of the First Judicial District, was attended by over 300 people. CASAs, as the volunteers are known, assisted over 700 local children through the court system. Approximately 150 CASAs advocate for the best interests of abused children, not nearly enough to reach the goal of a volunteer for every child who has seen and experienced far more than children should ever have to ... to learn more, to contribute, to volunteer visit the CASA website HERE.
