“With this grant, my CASA youth received new glasses and is now better able to study and spend time outdoors. Her life has been full of physical and emotional difficulties and special needs. Yet she continues to strive in spite of all the difficulties she has had to experience. For a youth who in her young life has experienced so little good, the knowledge that there are people like you who care is priceless.”
