With Halloween* right around the corner, one of our advocates had noticed her 8-year-old CASA youth had been avoiding her questions about dressing up or celebrating the holiday. Upon asking his caregiver (and great-grandmother) she learned great-grandma’s fixed income didn’t allow for many extras. Not wanting him to miss out his school’s Halloween parade and festivities, his advocate and the CASA program were able to assist with purchasing his costume, providing the young man with a sense of normalcy and inclusion.
