Because of the pages and articles I write about bullying, sometimes I get asked for help by people who are aware of children being bullied. Thankfully, through the support of family, friends and other adults involved in the children's lives, not many of these sorts of cases end up in the Court Room.
But what about those cases where the kids do not have support from other adults, or where the adults themselves need help?
The Court Appointed Special Advocates for children help children who find themselves caught up in the legal system. The CASA Program is an incredible network that has been set up to help children who need help.
According to the CASA website, in 2011more than 75,000 volunteers were instrumental in helping 240,000 abused and neglected children to find safe, permanent homes.
