How Great is the Need for CASA Volunteers

Since our program covers three counties (Henderson, Anderson and Cherokee) the number of children being removed from their homes increase dramatically.  The following numbers reflect the number of children removed and assigned to CASA from January 1, 2016--- December 31, 2016.
