COVID-19 Update

IN PERSON VISITS:

At this time, we feel it is important to limit face to face contact as much as possible. CASA For Kids has begun slowly transitioning back into in-person visits.

 

HEARINGS:

Monongalia and Preston County hearings are now being held in-person. 

NorthWestern Mutual
Backpack Program

On Tuesday (7/17/21), our local Northwestern Mutual - Morgantown generously donated backpacks for children in our community. Words cannot express our gratitude to this incredible team for their continued commitment to making a difference in the life of a child.

Many of these children are removed from their homes and everything they know and love because of abuse or neglect. When they move from home to home, oftentimes, their belongings are lost or left behind. These backpacks, and everything in them, give these children a sense of ownership, comfort and belonging.
