Michael Piraino is the CEO for the National CASA Association and he has written several pieces for the Impact section of the Huffington Post that are of great significance to youth and former youth involved in the foster care system. His posts include Homeless for the Holidays, A Nation of Volunteers and most recently, The Overmedication of Foster Kids.
A post he made this March after the national CASA conference entitled Fulfilling our Fundemental Obligation is a powerful call to action. He states, "The time has come for us to honor our society's most fundamental obligation and to ensure the right of every child -- even those who enter foster care due to abuse and neglect -- to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and to grow in the embrace of a loving family." EmpowerMEnt's JUSTGeorgia Initiative is thankful for the powerful voice and ally we have in CASA's like Michael Piraino!!!
