Community Awareness Lunch - Change A Child's Story
Please join us for our free, annual community awareness lunch with special guest speaker, Justice LaRue, a former CASA youth who spent her entire childhood in and out of foster care.
Despite the many obstacles she faced growing up in the overburdened child welfare system, Justice LaRue has become a passionate advocate for foster youth. Her journey through the Texas foster care system began the day she was born after her mother gave up her parental rights. Her entire life was spent in and out of foster care without a consistent and reliable adult presence to help guide her – until she was appointed a dedicated CASA volunteer.
This annual fundraising event is open to long-time supporters as well as those hearing about CASA for the first time.

This event is free to attend, but please RSVP by 10/18/19 to Lauren@atlanticcapecasa.org or (609) 601-7800.
