CASA's Little Angel - Isabel
CASA received a wonderful surprise this week from a nine year old young lady. Instead of expecting gifts for her birthday, Isabel wanted to help those less fortunate. She asked her friends to make a small contribution to CASA instead. Isabel and her family were overwhelmed with the positive response! Isabel's friends and their parents were excited to participate. Isabel, through her selflessness and caring generosity, raised $495 for CASA! Because of your act of kindness, we salute you as CASA's Little Angel!

What is CASA?
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 933 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. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.
Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
Imagine bringing your child into the world prematurely with a heart defect. Now imagine that same child, with no family by his side, no one that cares, and no one to hold him. Can you imagine?
When Jeremy was born, his world consisted of doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Jeremy is the ninth child of his biological mother. Due to many complications Jeremy underwent multiple surgeries and was fed through a feeding tube. He was attached to a heart monitor and depended on oxygen to breathe. Confined to the hospital, he suffered numerous, long-lasting infections. At one point, Jeremy was prescribed thirteen medications. He spent nearly a year after his birth in hospitals, tended to by a constantly changing nursing staff.
