Sunflower CASA Project, Inc. has been awarded certification by the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association.
This certification recognizes that Sunflower CASA, serving Riley, Clay, and Pottawatomie counties, is in compliance with National CASA’s high standards for quality child advocacy.
According to Michael Piraino, CEO of the National CASA Association, “This certification says Sunflower CASA has demonstrated to us a strong capacity to provide excellent services to the abused and neglected children within their community.”
Sunflower CASA Project was started in 1988 by Judge Jerry Mershon, and volunteer advocates have served 1,250 victims of child abuse and neglect.
More volunteer advocates are needed in order to reach the goal of serving every child in the three counties who needs a CASA, and fall training begins soon.
