Jones Walker Sponsors Emma's Circle Luncheon
October 13, 2015

Jones Walker is proud to sponsor the Emma's Circle fundraising luncheon to be held on November 5, 2015, in Birmingham, Alabama. Emma's Circle is a project of the Alabama CASA Network and exists to give hope to abused, neglected, and abandoned children by advancing the Alabama CASA Network through fundraising and publicity. Alabama CASA seeks to provide a lay advocate for each abused or neglected child in Alabama. Each advocate is called a "CASA" or Court Appointed Special Advocate. A child with a CASA volunteer is half as likely to re-enter foster care, less likely to spend time in long-term foster care, more likely to be adopted, and more likely to perform better in school.
