Do you know the best way that you can represent children in foster care? Become a CASA volunteer and speak up for a child’s best interests.
In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of other cases. CASA volunteers can change that. CASA is a volunteer-based organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court.
Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time — and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.
Individuals can learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer and how they can make a positive impact in a child’s life by attending the upcoming CASA 101 Informational Session on Thursday, May 23rd from 11 am to 12 pm at the CASA office located at 102 E. Chickasaw Ave. in Sallisaw.
This is a no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission.
