Last year in Illinois, 111,732 Children were reported to be victims of abuse and neglect. 97% of these children were abused by something they love and trust. Tragically, 73 children died from abuse or neglect last year in Illinois.
In Will County, CASA is serving only 18% of the reported abuse/neglect cases each year. CASA's goal is to serve the other 82% who do not receive a CASA volunteer.
