June 2015 Volunteer of the Month
Samantha Hawkins

While many children are enjoying summer vacation and spending time with family at this time of year, abused and neglected youth living in foster care are waiting for safe, permanent homes with families of their own. You can help one of these children by becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer.

CASA needs volunteers to continue serving every child who needs a voice in our community.
Our next volunteer training course will begin September 8.

Every child deserves to thrive in the safety and love of a family. As children in the foster care system navigate through juvenile justice and social services proceedings, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers speak up for them with the ultimate goal being a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers do not provide legal representation, nor do they replace social workers. A CASA volunteer is an independent voice speaking solely for the child's best interests.

It only takes 45 minutes to learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer, and no special background is required. Attend one of our weekly informational sessions to take the first step.
