Sign up for October CASA training
With the Coronavirus pandemic, it is more critical than ever that children in foster care have someone who is making sure their needs are met and that our courts have trusted and trained advocates who can alert them if a child is in danger or has critical needs. By becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) you take an important step toward ensuring foster youth know they have a support system, and friend to rely on.
CASA volunteers make sure foster kids don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service systems or languish in unsupportive foster homes. CASA volunteers stay with children until their court case is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.
CASA is appealing to Sonoma County residents to volunteer. If you care and have about 10 hours a month to spend, being a CASA can be a very gratifying work. A CASA volunteer is a powerful voice in a child’s life.
The Fall Volunteer Training is scheduled to take place on the following dates: Thursday, Oct. 8, from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., and continues on Thursday, Oct. 15 and Friday, Oct. 16, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. CASA will provide this training via an online format.
