A Message From CASA of River Valley

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are well-trained volunteers who advocate for children that have suffered from abuse and neglect children involved in the juvenile court system due to no fault of their own.  CASA of River Valley volunteers help children through this traumatic time by acting as their voice through the entire process, with the ultimate goal of reunification or permanent placement in a safe, loving home.

CASA of River Valley relies on community support to fulfill its mission.  As little as $1,000 per child per year allows us to provide the advocacy services that will positively alter a child's future.  Your commitment to the CASA of River Valley Marathon Team will provide these children with hope and encouragement.

Contact Kelly Baltas to sign up as a member of Team CASA by emailing kbaltas@casaofrivervalley.org.
