Additionally, the epidemiological data should also be discussed and some possible problems outlined. It should also be said that the given community is the oldest community of Florida (Moore Parks & Bennett, 2010) which means that it has some unique aspects that could help to realize the way in which community of this very sort survive and even continue their development.

As a CASA volunteer, my mom works with neglected, abused, or foster care children alongside their legal aid and the court system. CASA volunteers make sure children do not get lost in the foster care or court system and advocates what is best for the child after spending a lot of time with the child and the other adults present in their life. CASA volunteers are often the one stable adult a child can have in their life.
