Nothing is as strong as the heart of a volunteer. CASA volunteers share their heart with children.

CASA volunteers make a difference in the lives of children.

Volunteers, donors, Board members, staff, and partners come together to honor CASA volunteers and service providers for their dedication and service to the program and most importantly children in the Northern Hills.
