BOn November 5th, 2018, Athens-Oconee CASA hosted a Foster Care Candlelight Vigil to bring light to our local foster children. With electronic candles in hand, community members, Children First, Inc. employees and volunteers, and representatives from other agencies walked through the streets of downtown Athens and gathered outside of the Athens Courthouse. We listened and learned from several speakers including Judge Robin Shearer, Valarie Norwood, and Catherine Tillman.
We are so thankful for all of our supporters of the event! Thank you to each of the agencies that came to share more information about how to support local foster children, to our speakers, and to our volunteers.
