It takes a community to support children who have experienced abuse and neglect. CASA of Kent County is proud to work with the county government, local businesses, foundations, and child welfare agencies. In addition, CASA is affiliated with our state and national CASA organizations.
The county government collaborates with CASA to make child advocacy services available through the 17th Circuit Court Family Division.
