In 2013, CASA of Franklin County served 779 children, only 23% 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 2014, CASA of Franklin County was on track to serve over 800 children who have been severely abused and neglected.
CASA of Franklin County is excited to announce some exciting events
coming up this summer and fall!
Each event will help raise funds for CASA all while enjoying beverages and wonderful company at some of Columbus’ finest establishments.
