2017 National CASA Conference

Last week our Executive Director went to Seattle to attend the National CASA Conference!

She learned all about the powerful impact that CASA volunteers are making around the country- our volunteers have a profound, positive influence on the lives of America’s children! She also got a chance to hear from Judge David Soukup in person— he is the judge who created the very first CASA program in 1977. What an honor!

CASA Dodgeball Tournament

This weekend, the amazing women of Kappa Alpha Theta at Quinnipiac University put on a hugely successful Dodgeball Tournament to benefit CASA!

Our Director, Lindsey Price Jackson, got to attend the event and introduce everyone to our program.

What a FUN time! Thanks, Thetas! We love your support and enthusiasm!

CASA Honored at Giants Game

In December, Children In Placement/CASA of CT’s new Executive Director, Lindsey Price Jackson, represented CASA programming from the tri-state area along with the Directors from the New Jersey and New York City CASA programs, by accepting a generous donation from Wendy’s to help support our mission to support children in foster care.

Thank you, Wendy’s and The New York Football Giants!

CT’s 1st Annual CASA Superhero Fun Run

In 2016, Children In Placement/CASA of CT worked with Quinnipiac University’s Kappa Alpha Theta sorority to put on our very first Superhero Fun Run!

More than 100 local children and families came to support us at the run, and enjoyed a mini Halloween carnival after the race, put on by the Thetas.

We will see everyone again this year with even more costumes, running, and fun!
