You can help a child!
Did you know that April is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month and May is Foster Care Awareness month? Are you looking for ways you can help a child? Become a CASA Volunteer.
CASA volunteers are trained members of the community who advocate for abused and neglected children in family court. A volunteer follows a child’s cases as it moves through the family court system. The volunteer researches the case, learning everything they can about the child’s special situation. The CASA volunteer then makes recommendations to the judge on what’s best for the child’s future.
CASA of the Southern Tier, Inc. has set the dates for the CASA 101 Initial training.
