Hundreds of children enter the foster care system in our community each year and need the voice of a CASA Volunteer to make sure their best interest is represented. Community members are encouraged to attend one of three upcoming CASA 101 Informational Sessions hosted by CASA of the South Plains in February to learn how they can make a positive impact in the life of a child in foster care. 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.
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.
Thursday, February 6th from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 15th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Tuesday, February 25th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
