In Fairfax County, a new case of child abuse or neglect enters the court system once every few days. When these children come from the Hispanic/Latino Community, they are at an extreme disadvantage; there are not enough Spanish speaking CASA volunteers to help ensure that these children receive the same care, and attention as other child victims of abuse.
Fairfax Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) recruits and trains volunteers to investigate a child's situation and to advocate for the best interests of the child in court. We seek volunteers fluent in both English and Spanish to close the language gap and make sure our Hispanic children grow up in safe and permanent homes. No prior experience in child welfare or the law is required.
You language and professional skills can help keep our Hispanic/Latino children safe. To learn more, contact Mindy Stewart, Director of Recruitment and Marketing (703) 273-3526, ext. 22 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit the Fairfax CASA website for details: www.fairfaxcasa.org.
