The CASA Project

LANCASTER, PA (01/03/2018)“The CASA Project: Stand Up For A Child”, a dramatic reading written by Sandy Asher, describes how Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is effective in the child welfare system. Produced by Creative Works of Lancaster, and directed by Lydia Brubaker, “The CASA Project” will make its local debut on Sunday, February 11th, 2018, 4pm at the Congregation Shaarai Shomayim, 75 East James St, Lancaster. The event is free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated. No reservation is required.

The script was originally commissioned by CASA of Southwest Missouri, where Asher compiled interviews Drury University college students conducted with CASA volunteers, lawyers, case workers, foster parents, and others. Asher also completed the volunteer training program to give an authentic representation. While the script follows the college students through their learning process, the heart of the piece undoubtedly comes through the voices of the abused children, represented by poems written by Casey Adams Smith, a survivor of abuse who spent time in foster care herself. The stories are often heart-wrenching and sometimes funny, but most importantly, they are eye-opening.

Donated proceeds from the play will be given to CASA of Lancaster in the hopes of growing the organization to advocate for every child in need. Representatives from CASA of Lancaster will also be onsite to answer any questions the audience may have.
CASA is central in fighting for and protecting a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to flourish in a loving and permanent home. To learn more about CASA or “The CASA Project” please call (717) 208-3280, email casa@casalancaster.org, or visit www.casalancaster.org.
