CASA Volunteers play a crucial role in the life of children in foster care. By volunteering as a CASA, or a Court Appointed Special Advocate, individuals can help a child in foster care navigate the child welfare system while working to ensure their needs are being met and help find a safe, permanent home. CASA of the South Plains currently needs 16 CASA Volunteers to provide advocacy services to 22 children the judge has entrusted us with. Individuals can learn more about becoming a CASA Volunteer and how they can make a positive impact in a child’s life by attend the upcoming CASA 101 Informational Session on Thursday, May 9th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Lubbock Area United Way at 1655 Main St #101. This is a great, no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission.
CASA 101 attendees interested in becoming a CASA Volunteer can also begin the application and sign-up process at the event. Training classes can fill up quickly and volunteers are needed as soon as possible.
