April 2015 CASA Volunteer of the Month:
Andy McCall

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

National Child Abuse Prevention month is a time to recognize that we can all play a part in the safety and well-being of our community's children. You can help an abused child reach a safe, permanent home by becoming a CASA volunteer.

CASA needs volunteers to continue serving every child who needs a voice in our community.
Our next volunteer training class will begin June 9.

Children need to do more than survive. They need to thrive in the safety and love of a family. However, some children have been removed from their homes and placed in foster care due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. As these children navigate through juvenile justice and social services proceedings, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers speak up for their best interests with the ultimate goal being a safe, permanent home.

It only takes 45 minutes to learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer. Attend one of our weekly informational sessions to take the first step.
