August 2019: News, Events, and Opportunities for CASA Volunteers 
Letter from CASA Executive Director Angela Rose 
Dear CASA Volunteers:
It was so wonderful to see so many of you last weekend at Hillside Gardens for our Volunteer Appreciation event!  
We hope you enjoyed the food, company, and magnificent view. We also hope the event illustrated just how appreciative we are for each and every one of you. We certainly wouldn't be well on our way to serving every child that needs us without your passion and dedication. Thank you!  
You might have noticed that News Channel 5 came out to enjoy the day with us as well. Click here to catch some of your fellow volunteers talking about CASA on the news!
Thank you all for your continued service to our community's children. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me at

Changes coming to The Hanger this September

  • The Hanger will no longer be open on Monday nights.
  • Shopping during the week is now ONLY for emergency placements, and unsupervised shopping is not permitted. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact Jill
  • Teens may take five pairs of shoes per year and only two of those pairs can be sneakers. Reminder: Clothing and shoes are only for the teen who is taking them, and they need to be in the correct size.
