At her first hearing in foster care, Lauren met the woman who would help turn her life around: Stephanie, her CASA volunteer.  Stephanie stood up for Lauren in the courtroom.  She gave voice to Lauren’s concerns and needs and fought for a better future.  Today, Lauren is a university student.  She wants to dedicate her life to helping others.   With your financial support, we can recruit, train, and support enough volunteers to care for every child in need in our county. A gift of
