CASA Volunteers are desperately needed to serve as the voice for the best interest of children in foster care in our community. During the month of June, CASA of the South Plains will host a series of informational sessions that will provide community members with an opportunity to learn more about the pivotal role CASA Volunteers play in the life of a child in foster care. A CASA, or a Court Appointed Special Advocate, helps 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 discuss the increasing need for volunteers, what it means to be a CASA, and the difference CASA Volunteers make in the lives of children in foster care. Individuals can register for these online sessions at www.casaofthesouthplains.org or contact Patti Castro, Recruitment Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The upcoming May dates are:
Thursday, June 4th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
