CASA of the South Plains will host a series of informational sessions in January to educate the community on the need for more concerned citizens to serve as CASA Volunteers in order to make sure the best interest of children in foster care is represented. The number of children in foster care who need a CASA continues to outpace the number of available volunteers. As a CASA, or a Court Appointed Special Advocate, community members can help a child in foster care navigate the child welfare system while working to ensure their needs are being met and advocate for a safe, permanent home.
Individuals can learn more by attending one of the following CASA 101 Informational Sessions:
Saturday, January 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Tuesday, January 21st from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
To attend, please register at www.casaofthesouthplains.org or contact Patti Castro, Recruitment Director, at (806) 763-2272 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A CASA 101 Informational Session is a great, no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission. CASA staff and a current CASA Volunteer 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 children in foster care.
