April 2016 Volunteer of the Month
Susan Perlis

CASA needs more African American volunteers.

Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers speak up for abused and neglected children living in foster care to help them reach safe, permanent homes. In 2015, nearly 80% of the children served by Capital Area CASA were African American, yet only about a third of CASA's volunteers were African American.

These children need volunteers with whom they can identify. An African American CASA volunteer also provides a positive influence as a powerful advocate who has the ability to make a difference in the child's life.

Your voice can help an abused child reach a forever family.

The first step to getting involved is to attend a 45-minute orientation session at CASA. For more information, click here, call (225) 379-8598 or email
