Description of Program
CASA of Luzerne County is a non-profit 501(c)3 child advocacy organization that was established in 2013. We are part of the National CASA Association and we continue to grow and develop with the help and guidance of this robust organization. There are currently over 1,000 CASA/GAL programs in 49 states recruiting, training, and supporting a network of volunteers to represent the best interests of children in their respective communities.
We know that children who are assigned a CASA volunteer are half as likely to re-enter foster care. We know that children who are assigned a CASA volunteer spend less time in foster care. And we know that children who are assigned a CASA volunteer perform better in school. Since 2013, 158 children in Luzerne County have been matched with a CASA volunteer.
