When a child who has been abused or neglected is going through the trauma of the court system, a CASA advocate is there. A CASA volunteer is the tireless and passionate protector of a child who has been abused or neglected and is going through the trauma of the court system. They are granted tremendous authority by the court, and are able to do what it takes to see that a child is not ignored, their best interests and critical needs are addressed, and that the presiding judge is able to understand the true facts of a child's condition in an over-burdened child welfare system.
Brian Rice, District President of Key Bank and John Berglund, Group Vice President of Merchandising for Fred Meyer Jewelers, joined us to share why supporting CASA is so important. Their companies are co-presenting sponsors of the upcoming fundraiser.
