CASA to Offer Volunteer Training [Audio]

CASA of the South Plains, Facebook

Monday on Lubbock’s First News, Melissa Pierce, Special Events and Marketing Coordinator of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), talked about their upcoming training for new volunteers.

Volunteers for the program are “advocates who are voices for kids in foster care.” They help represent foster children in court and can take on some tasks that Child Protective Services may not be able to complete. One example of this is volunteer involvement in helping siblings, who may have been placed in separate homes, visiting time.

The training will take place once a week for four weeks, beginning on Tuesday January 28. Some work is done at home and other training work is done on site. Pierce said the volunteer’s “end goal is to get [the kids] into a permanent home as quickly as possible.” Pierce recommended calling before the week of the first training.

More information can be found at CASA of the South Plains website or by calling (806)763-2272.
