After being in the system for four years, 17-year-old Courtney said she wanted to attend her court appearance, but couldn’t bring herself to attend.
CASA Steps In
After many meetings, Courtney’s Advocate discovered that Courtney was extremely afraid to be in the same room with her abusive step-father. By teaming up with Special Services, Courtney’s Advocate was able to arrange a separate court date that wouldn’t include her step-father.
Now Courtney is happy to be able to participate in her case since it will ultimately decide her future.
