Voices for Children, advocates for abused or neglected children, is seeking volunteers to assist foster children in Jefferson and Lincoln counties.
“As a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), volunteers receive in-depth training to advocate in court and in the community for the needs and rights of children in foster care,” a spokeswoman said in news release.
“Once they are assigned to a case, they can expect to spend an average of 4–10 hours per month getting to know the child, gathering information, exploring resources that child may benefit from, representing the child in court and writing reports,” she said.
Contact Voices of Children by Tuesday, Jan. 17, to join the next training group. Details: Voices for Children, 536-5922, or firstname.lastname@example.org
