HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

CASA officials said a new deck replaces steps that were in bad shape and there is also new flooring inside. Officials said Lowe's donated the materials while the work was done by airmen from Keesler Air Force Base.

"With the families who are in crises, they're looking all around them at everything. And when you come in and have a nice environment for them, sit down and have a cup of coffee with them. They're more receptive. They're more comfortable and we come out with better solutions for the children," Harrison County CASA Executive Director Roy Kitchell.

Officials said Keesler Federal Credit Union plans to sponsor the construction of awnings so staff and volunteers won't get wet when it rains.
