*Liam is a 15-year-old youth who came into the foster care system about a year ago as a result of medical neglect. His mother has an intellectual disability which resulted in her not seeking medical attention for Liam when he developed an infection. Since coming into care, Liam has resided in a group home for children with special needs, as he has also been diagnosed with an intellectual disability. Liam is doing well in his placement and his mother is engaging in services. However, Liam could benefit from having a CASA volunteer involved who could help ensure that services continue, especially after Liam transitions to a trial home visit with his mother.
