CASA needs more volunteers to join “Team CASA” and stand up for children in foster care

More individuals are urgently needed to become CASA Volunteers and make sure children in foster care have a voice to speak up for their best interest. Community members have one final opportunity this year to attend a CASA 101 and learn how they can join “Team CASA” before our last training class of 2018, which begins November 1st. A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate is a volunteer who helps a child in foster care navigate the child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met while working to help find a safe, permanent home.

Individuals interested in learning more about becoming a CASA Volunteer can attend the upcoming CASA 101 informational session hosted by CASA of the South Plains on Saturday, October 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at TOVA Coffeehouse at 6023 82nd Street. This is a great, 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.

CASA 101 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.

To attend, please register at www.casaofthesouthplains.org or contact Kristen Mata, Recruitment Director, by Friday, October 19th at (806) 763-2272 or via email at kristenm@casaofthesouthplains.org. Lunch will be provided to attendees.
