Yesterday was a special day for CASA Youth Advocates.

GlaxoSmithKline selected CASA Youth Advocates for the 2018 GSK IMPACT Award of $40,000 for efforts to improve community health. Our amazing volunteers and case supervisors make sure the abused and neglected children we serve receive adequate medical and dental care, participate in recommended therapeutic services, and that their medications and medical records follow them from placement to placement.

We are so thrilled to have received this amazing award yesterday and be recognized for the work of our incredible staff and volunteers.
