CASA of the South Plains will host an orientation session for prospective volunteers at its office at #24 Briercroft Office Park on Wednesday, May 27th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is a great, no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission to provide abused and neglected foster kids with volunteer Advocates that can speak up for their well-being. Join CASA staff and current volunteer Advocates as they discuss the increasing need for volunteers, what it means to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA, and how community members can help make a difference in the lives of Lubbock area foster children.
To sign up, please R.S.V.P to Amanda Norfleet by Tuesday, May 26th at (806) 763-2272 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The South Plains region has one of the highest per capita rates of child abuse and neglect at double the state average. CASA volunteer Advocates work with the parties involved in a foster child’s case to ensure their best interests are represented. We are excited to provide this opportunity for the public to learn more about our organization and how our Advocates make a lifelong impact in the lives of these most vulnerable youth”, said Jennie Hill, Executive Director for CASA of the South Plains.
Lunch will be provided. All attendees will be entered to win a special door prize that includes a $20 gift certificate to Orlando’s Italian Restaurant! Make sure you sign up today!
