Recently ITC donated three Maia desk lamps to the new Michigan CASA office located in Grand Rapids. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. The advocates are volunteers that have been trained and are appointed by a judge to represent a child in family court. They advocate for the best interests of the child and spend time learning and talking with the child about their situation. Advocates become the voice of the child in court and help to prevent children from being placed back into unhealthy or dangerous situations. There are over 14,000 abused and neglected children not being served in Michigan alone. ITC strongly supports the work CASA is doing and is looking forward to helping with future donations, volunteer efforts, etc.
