Former Foster Youth Wows Audience at Wonderful Witchy Women Event
Many thanks to the Bella Vista League for featuring Anai, a former foster youth, as a key speaker at their Wonderful Witchy Women fundraiser on October 26th. The event raises funds for nonprofits, and this year, Child Advocates was chosen to be a grant recipient.

Anai, pictured here with Susan, one of her CASAs, delivered an emotional speech that left hardly a dry eye in the house.
