Is anybody paying attention as funding for one of the most vital programs for neglected and abused children is slashed to $0? Society has an obligation to abused and neglected children. Caring for them is our collective responsibility.

So why does the Administration’s current budget proposal end federal funding of the Victims of Child Abuse Act?

The ratio of expenses to overhead for CASA is among the best in the nonprofit world. A single dollar invested in CASA programs yields $23.40 in savings in the foster care and child welfare system.

So why would anyone allow the $12 million in funding CASA receives through the Victims of Child Abuse Act to just disappear?
