CASA of Missoula Celebrates 20 Years

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A non-profit  that helps abused and neglected children in Missoula and Mineral Counties is celebrating 20 years.

CASA of Missoula recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers to advocate for and provide assistance to children in need until they have a permanent and safe home. The group is celebrating its 20th anniversary by showcasing a collection of black and white portraits at Southgate Mall's non-profit fair. The portraits feature people who have impacted the group.

"CASA is the only agency completely free to the people we serve and tax payers, and we're the only agency speaking out on the child's best interest," said Kirsten Vorreyer, the CASA of Missoula Program Manager.

The number of children CASA serves jumps each year. In 20-13, it served almost 400 children. That's up from 11 when it started in 1994.
