Event to offer information about becoming child welfare advocate with Carson City CASA
April 5, 2017
Volunteers will be on hand delivering information to anyone who wants to learn more about a nonprofit that advocates for abused and neglected children.
Court Appointed Special Advocates is hosting an information hour at 5:30 p.m. April 10 at its office in the Family Court Complex, 1539 E. Fifth St. To access the office, drive to the back of the parking lot where a large CASA sign will be on a door.
The event offers information without the pressure to sign up.
CASA volunteers are appointed by the Carson City Juvenile Court to serve as guardian ad litem for a case of abused or neglected children in a child welfare court case.
Being a CASA volunteer requires patience, caring, research, writing, speaking and follow-through. A background check, references, application, interview and 30 hours of training are required.
