This July, 17 new CASA volunteers were sworn-in. After attending 40 hours of classroom training, as well as court observation- our new volunteers are equipped with the newest information on trauma, child development, health, and education. These tools will enable them to provide best-in-class advocacy for the children they serve.
CASA volunteers are the backbone of our work and we are forever grateful to them- not to mention so very proud of them. Let's give them a big congratulations!
