(WSIL) -- News 3 WSIL has partnered with the Southern Illinois Community Foundation and Pepsi Mid-America to spotlight local nonprofit organizations through our Giving Tuesday series.
CASA of Franklin & Hamilton Counties trains, supports, and supervises community volunteers to advocate for youth who have experienced abuse and neglect in Franklin and Hamilton Counties. Every year, CASA provides advocacy for 115 youth who enter the court system.
Additionally, CASA's programs provide a visitation room for youth and parents to have a safe, supervised, and family-friendly place to visit while youth are in care.
CASA is supported entirely through community donations and grants, and as a result, their services are all provided free of charge. CASA's vision is for every child to be given an opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
