Educational Support Program Helps Foster Kids in Macon County Navigate Remote Learning

From Herald & Review | December 16, 2020

As tough as being a foster kid is, learning by remote and worries about a virus you might or might not understand makes it harder.

Macon County Court-Appointed Special Advocates has found a way to make it a little easier. Illinois CASA received grant money from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority to pay for advocates and tutors.

“We support and advocate for children who are in the foster care system and the kids are spread out in all the different school districts in Macon County and beyond,” said CASA Executive Director Julia Livingston.
