February is Black History Month
CASA Salutes its African American Volunteers

In honor of Black History Month, Capital Area CASA Association recognizes the positive impact that its African American volunteers have made on children in the foster care system. These volunteers are making a big difference in the lives of abused and neglected youth in East Baton Rouge Parish, and Capital Area CASA is grateful for their advocacy efforts.

CASA needs volunteers - especially more African American individuals - to continue serving every child who needs a voice in our community. Our next volunteer training class will begin April 14. To learn more, click here, email or call (225) 379-8598.

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.
