Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) seeks volunteers to be there for a child

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Amador County is seeking volunteers to join their next training session to become volunteer advocates.

A volunteer advocate, known as a CASA, after 40 hours of training, are assigned to be a special person in the life of a child who has been neglected or abused.  The court will appoint the CASA to be the eyes and ears of the court and to report back to the court information they have gathered. The CASA will also tell the court what decisions and services may be in the best interest of that child.

CASA of Amador currently has a waiting list of children who are in need of a CASA.

For more information about the program or details on how to become a CASA, please call the CASA program at 209-257-1980, extension 108. You may also email the CASA Coordinators, John jstettler@nexusyfs.org or Fara froberts@nexusyfs.org.
