Appalachian CASA recruiting more advocates

Submitted by CASA

            You too can change a child’s story. Become a volunteer with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Appalachian Judicial Circuit today. We are blessed to have many wonderful advocates to look out for the best interests of children in foster care unfortunately we consistently need more community volunteers to advocate of our children in need.

            CASA volunteers are trained community volunteers who are appointed by a judge to advocate for an abused and neglected child in juvenile court deprivation proceedings. Volunteer advocates speak to everyone involved in the child’s life, including their family members, teachers, doctors, lawyers, social workers, and others; and makes written recommendations to the court as to the child’s best interest. The advocate is often the only constant adult presence in the child’s life.

            If you are interested in learning more about becoming a CASA volunteer and the rewards that come along with serving as the voice of a child, you can visit our website at appalachiancasa.com or email us at advocacy@appalachiancasa.com. Our next training session will begin October 1, and will be virtual.
