Throughout the evening there was a raffle, fun casino tables games, delicious cuisine and the inspiring stories of CASA children and their volunteers.

More about CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Luzerne County
CASA of Luzerne County is a non-profit 501(c)3 child advocacy organization that was established in 2013 to serve abused and neglected children.
CASA of Luzerne County’s mission is to recruit, train and support community volunteers to serve as the voice of abused and neglected children in the Luzerne County court system so that these children will be safe, secure and given the opportunity to thrive.
CASA of Luzerne County was founded on the belief that children who have been abused or neglected deserve a dedicated advocate to speak up for their best interests in court, in school and in our community. To accomplish this goal, CASA recruits, educates, supports and empowers a diverse community of volunteers who ensure that every child’s unique circumstances are carefully considered in an over-burdened child welfare system.
CASA has provided advocates for 120 children since 2013, and there are approximately 400 children in foster care in Luzerne Count who still need them.
If you’d be interested in volunteering or learning more about an upcoming training program can call the CASA office at 570-855-2247. An information session is also planned for Oct. 11.
