CASA has growing need



Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is experiencing one of the largest numbers of referrals in 20 years for abused and neglected children who are entering the child welfare system afraid and alone.

CASA is seeking volunteers to help. CASA has over 50 youth awaiting your friendship and advocacy, which can bring a life-changing relationship to them, and the list continues to grow. As little as 10 hours a month can make a child’s life brighter. CASA summer training begins July 20.

CASAs are volunteers and ordinary citizens from our community, like you, doing extraordinary work. CASA advocates establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.

When a child has an advocate, she is more likely to get needed services – and a permanent, stable home. Are you eager to make a difference in a child’s life? Become a volunteer.

To register for the training that starts July 20, go to www.sonomacasa.org or call 565-6375.
