ADA — CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate Program) has begun accepting applications for new volunteer training to begin in May. CASA Advocates are appointed by judges to be the voice for abused and neglected children in court.

Advocates get to know the children they serve and gather information from social workers, placement providers, parents, counselors, teachers, or anyone who might have knowledge regarding the child. This information is given to the court, to help determine what is best for the child. Potential volunteers are required to complete an in-depth screening interview, background check, and 30 hours of training and courtroom observation. For more information or to request an application, phone 332-1441 or stop by 514 E. 10th Street, Ada.
