Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of South Central Missouri is hosting its 10th annual Justice IS Served! breakfast on Thursday, June 10.
This event will be held at the Signature Event Center, in Rolla, catered by Di Trapani's Italian Bistro.
Judges from the 25th Judicial Circuit will be serving breakfast to community members and supporters of CASA of South Central Missouri.
In 2020, there were 729 children, in our communities, who found themselves in the court system, at no fault of their own. This number ranks our area as one of the highest rates of child abuse per capita in the State of Missouri.
CASA of South Central Missouri volunteers were able to give a voice in court to over 350 children. That leaves over 370 children who still need an advocate for their case.
CASA's goal is to serve every child in care, which means an additional 100 new volunteers will need to be recruited.
