The Joint Court Appointed Special Advocates of Yellowstone County (CASA) VISTA project gives the opportunity for graduating students to grow professionally AND help mentoring services to disadvantaged children. This project is expected to lessen the amount of time children stay in non-permanent living situations and will prevent future abuse and neglect for at least 20 children supported through CASA.
