In 2015, CASA of Franklin County served 831 abused and neglected children, but this was only 30% of the children in the Franklin County Juvenile Court System.

In Ohio, a child is abused or neglected every 17 minutes.

A child is likely to move three or more times during the average 21 months they spend in foster care.

Only 54% of youth in foster care earn a high school diploma and only 2% earn a bachelor’s degree or higher.

In 2016, CASA of Franklin County is on track to serve over 800 children who have been severely abused and neglected.
