HARPER'S STORY

Harper is a seven-year-old little girl that lives in foster care and depends on the system to make sure she is safe. 

 

Does she have enough food to eat?   Is she safe in her home?   How are her grades?

 

Without a CASA Volunteer to speak on her behalf, Harper can't let the judge know important things such as:

  • ​How many foster homes has she lived in this year?

  • ​Is she going to the doctor?

  • Is she able to visit her parents safely?

  • When was the last time she saw her siblings?

  • ​How many schools has she attended this year?

Harper has been abused in the past and having a CASA Volunteer is one of the strongest ways to protect Harper from more abuse. There are currently more than 100 children, just like Harper, in need of a CASA in Leavenworth and Atchison Counties.

 

Help Harper and children like her in your community today.
