About

The Advocacy Alliance- Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program. (Ongoing, Mentoring) Become an advocate for a child or sibling group in the foster care system. A trained CASA volunteer is appointed by a judge to be an advocate for children, to give them hope, support, and encouragement, and to ensure that their voices are heard as the juvenile court system seeks safe, permanent, and nurturing homes for them. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. Spring Training starts April 5, 2018. Apply Now! Volunteers are also needed to help with the CASA office and fundraising events. Contact: Joan Peterson, 570-558-3971 or jp@theadvocacyalliance.org.
