Dependency CASA Program - QLSP

Family law custody cases involve children caught in the middle of high-risk custody cases between their parents and sometimes their family members. Neither the child nor the parents receive state-provided supportive or protective services. The children we serve are from lower income homes within King County (under $80k combined gross income). Issues impacting the child include domestic violence, addiction, mental illness, neglect and more.
