Volunteers are needed in Starke County to shepherd abused and neglected children through the court system. Court Appointed Special Advocates, CASAs for short, represent the best interests of children in state custody during all of their court proceedings. Their recommendations carry a lot of weight when it comes to determining a permanent placement for youngsters.
Volunteers are asked to commit between five and 15 hours per month visiting children and gathering information. They also accompany the youngsters to whom they are assigned to court hearings.
The first of 10 training sessions begins on March 21st. All will be scheduled in the evenings. Call 574-772-7200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
