CASA Connection welcomes a new volunteer!! Congratulations to Keith Luedders who was sworn in April 15 by the Honorable Frank Skorupa, Platte County juvenile court judge. Keith is ready to advocate for the children in our community who deserve big hearted adults willing to be their voice in the juvenile court system. In fact he has already jumped in with both feet and has accepted his first case to advocate for! Please welcome them into the CASA family.
