Casa is in Need of Volunteers
Written By: Ben Wilcox
CASA Volunteers act as advocates for abused and neglected children.
CASA of the southern tier is looking for volunteers to act as advocates for Abused and Neglected Children. They have been holding volunteer recruitment events in several towns, but say there is still a need in Chemung, Steuben and Schuyler County. A CASA Advocate is court appointed and works with a child through there case in the family court system. An advocate is not a mentor, they work with all parties involved in the case and make recommendations based on what they learn ,and feel will be in the best interest of the child. Anyone can be a CASA volunteer, as long as they are over 21 and do not have a criminal background.
