The mission of Colonial CASA is to promote and protect the best interests of children who have been abused or neglected, by training court appointed volunteers to advocate for them in the court and the community, so they have the opportunity to thrive in safe and permanent homes.
Experiencing traumatic things as a child puts you at risk for lifelong health effects. The CDC’s new report confirms this, finding that Americans who had experienced adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, were at higher risk of dying from five of the top 10 leading causes of death.
And those who had been through more bad experiences — such as abuse or neglect, witnessing violence at home, or growing up in a family with mental health or substance abuse problems — were at an even higher risk.
