Volunteers needed to advocate for abused and neglected youth

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) - Capital Area CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Association urgently needs caring adults – especially more male and African American individuals – to speak up for abused and neglected youth living in foster care.
 
CASA volunteers advocate for these children to help them reach safe, permanent homes. CASA volunteers do not provide legal representation, nor do they replace social workers. A CASA volunteer is an independent voice speaking solely for the best interests of the child.
 
Community volunteers are needed in order for Capital Area CASA to continue serving every child who needs a voice in our community. No special background is required. The first step to becoming a CASA volunteer is to attend one of the following 45-minute orientation sessions at the CASA office, 848 Louisiana Ave.
