In 2013, CASA of Franklin County served 779 children, only 23% of the children in the Franklin County Juvenile Court System.
In Ohio, a child is abused or neglected every 17 minutes.
A child is likely to move three or more times during the average 21 months they spend in foster care.
Only 54% of youth in foster care earn a high school diploma and only 2% earn a bachelor’s degree or higher.
In 2014, CASA of Franklin County was on track to serve over 800 children who have been severely abused and neglected.
