Join CASA Lake County as we celebrate the incredible accomplishments of our nearly 300 volunteer advocates who have dedicated themselves to a vision for our community in which every child has the right to a safe, permanent home where they have a chance to grow and thrive. It is powerful goal, and you can help to make it a reality.
