About

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where s/he can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.

Our next 30+ hour training begins on Wednesday, February 28; all sessions are required. Here is the schedule:
Wednesday, February 28, 6 PM to 9 PM
Wednesday, March 7: 6 PM to 9 PM
Saturday, March 10: 9 AM to 3 PM
Wednesday, March 14: 6 PM to 9 PM
Wednesday, March 21: 6 PM to 9 PM
