Betty Stark, Court Appointed Special Advocates

According to the national Court Appointed Special Advocates website, “every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day! Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Last year there were 75,000 CASA volunteers. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
