Monroe County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is now accepting applications for the upcoming August training session. The next training is from August 3-26 on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. This will be a virtual training, with all sessions held on Zoom, so all participants will need to have access to a computer, phone or tablet with access to the internet as well as a camera and microphone. CASA has added this second summer training session due to an increased need for volunteers. As of June 23rd, over 40 children are on the CASA wait list. Abused and neglected children in our community need a stable, caring adult on their side that they can trust. Please consider getting involved or share this information with others to help spread the word. CASA is a volunteer-powered program which provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of abuse and neglect. They provide support to these children to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
