Individuals interested in volunteering to become a CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, are invited to an informational meeting from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, March 9, at The Grand second floor conference room at Reagor Dykes Headquarters, 1215 Avenue J.
CASA volunteers help foster children navigate the child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met while working to help find safe, permanent homes. This meeting is a no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission. CASA staff and current Advocates will be on hand to discuss the increasing need for volunteers, what it means to be a CASA, and how community members can help make a difference in the lives of area foster children.
Attendees interested in becoming a CASA volunteer can also begin the application and sign-up process. Training classes can fill up quickly and space is limited.
