There will also be a fun run for kids! Dressing up ENCOURAGED! What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day ("May the Fourth Be With You!") than to put on a superhero or Star Wars costume and make a difference for vulnerable children?!

CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child's safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations to help the judge decide what's best for the child.

For children who've been abused or neglected, CASA means having a home instead of feeling lost, and being a priority instead of feeling invisible. For volunteers, CASA is a life-changing experience that makes our community a better place.
