HOWARD COUNTY - More help is on the way for abused and neglected children in Howard County.
On Wednesday, CASA swore in 5 new volunteers.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates.
When children are taken from their home by Child Protective Services, the judge appoints the group to oversee the best interest of the child.
After the five of them were sworn in, a reception was held for the group at the Howard County Courthouse.
