CASA for Children is seeking “a few good men” -- and other volunteers -- to act as adult role models and provide a voice for abused and neglected children in their community.
A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, is a volunteer that helps foster children navigate the overburdened child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met throughout their time in care.
“These children, especially boys, are lacking positive male relationships,” said Jenny Crosby, training and outreach coordinator. “Now is the time to step off the sidelines and make a difference.”
Prospective volunteers are urged to attend the upcoming virtual “Quarterback Draft” information session at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14.
This is a great no-obligation introduction to CASA and its mission. CASA staff and current volunteers will be online to discuss what it means to be a CASA volunteer and how community members can help make a difference in the lives of area foster children.
For more information or to RSVP, contact Jenny Crosby at (918) 686-8199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
