CASA in Need of Volunteers

By Tammy Moore Teague

Being a light to a child in their darkest hour is what volunteers for CASA of Sebastian County are called to do. Training classes are beginning soon, and the advocate group needs volunteers.

“CASA is a program where trained court appointed volunteers represent the best interest of an abused or neglected child for whom a placement is being determined by the juvenile court. A CASA volunteer acts as a fact finder of the child’s best interest, providing a judge with valuable information on the child to help the court make a sound decision about the child’s future.”

It takes 10-12 hours per month to become an advocate. As a volunteer, you can help a child who is in foster care through no fault of their own. Be a light of hope! Training classes for Sebastian County will begin August 7, at 5:30 p.m. For more information, please call the CASA office at 479-785-4171.
