CASA is proud to announce that 26 new volunteers were sworn in as Court Appointed Special Advocates on March 6 by the Hon. Rebecca Connolly The newly appointed volunteer Advocates have been trained by CASA and will be advocating for children in the county’s dependency (foster care) system.
CASA Advocate Supervisor and Waitlist Manager Lucia de la Torre said, “We had four new children referred to CASA right after this class graduated. They were immediately matched with an Advocate, spending no time one our waitlist.” Lucia continued, “That’s what we strive for at CASA, and we’re so fortunate to have trained volunteers ready to advocate for our children.”
