April is National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month
April is National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month and a time to recognize that together we can help prevent abuse. To bring about a sense of community and raise awareness of this issue, CASA of Houston County held its 1st Annual Hands Around the Courthouse event on April 9, 2014.
Participants joined hands for a moment of silence acknowledging local victims of abuse and neglect. The most recent class of 7 newly trained CASA/GAL volunteers were sworn in at this event. The ceremony was open to the public and lasted about 20 minutes. A light lunch was provided by Marco's Pizza.

"I’ve always known that I loved and cared about the educational aspect of a child; but I now know if children of families are in crisis and are going to have a fighting chance, someone must be their loud and strong voice in this world of broken systems...CASA allows for me to be A VOICE"
~ Mrs. Beverly Tennison, CASA MVP June 2013
