What would you do with 10 months?

In 10 months: 
  • A baby is conceived, developed, and born 
  • An infant has learned to sit up, crawl, and begin to pull themselves up
  • A child finishes an entire grade of school 
What could you do in 10 months?     

In 2015, a child with a Heartland CASA volunteer spent an average of 10 months less in foster care than a child without a CASA volunteer.  That is 10 months sooner their lives were back to normal. 10 months sooner that they were able to call someplace safe home, permanently. 

Help us give children of abuse and neglect 10 months more of being a child by becoming a volunteer or making a donation today.
