Local foster children need volunteer Advocates

Over the last 10 years, the rate of children entering foster care on the South Plains has increased annually by an average of 3%. CASA needs the community’s help to provide these most vulnerable youth with CASA Advocates, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, that can be a voice to foster kids who need someone that can speak up for their well-being. CASA needs to recruit fifty new volunteer Advocates in the next fifty days. Community members can learn more about becoming an Advocate by attending a CASA 101 informational session at the CASA office at #24 Briercroft Office Park.

The next informational session is scheduled for Thursday, August 13th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. 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 life of area foster children. Lunch will be provided to attendees. To sign up, please R.S.V.P to Amanda Norfleet by Wednesday, August 12th at (806) 763-2272 or via email at amandan@lubbockcasa.org.

“There is no question in my mind that my work as a volunteer makes a positive difference in the life of a child in foster care,” said Charles, CASA Advocate.

For questions or for more information about how to become a CASA, please contact Amanda Norfleet, Recruitment Director at (806) 763-2272 or via email at amandan@lubbockcasa.org.
