Lisa Dent, filling in for Bob Sirott, welcomes Gloria Kelley. Gloria is the Executive Director for CASA Kane County, which is part of a movement of 1,000 programs nationwide. Everyone in Illinois has seen an enormous increase of children and cases coming into shelter care – which means after children are removed from their homes after a hotline call is made, they are taken into protective services or DCFS and then brought into abuse/neglect court. CASA needs the help of the community more than ever with recruitment of more volunteers to advocate for our youth and to ensure our kids do not fall through the cracks of the system.
