CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocates is a nonprofit organization that trains and supports local volunteer advocates for children removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect.
Volunteers are people who are appointed by a judge to represent a child or group of children as they navigate through the court system.
Seven new CASA volunteers took their oaths with Judge Thomas Stockard of the Tenth Judicial District Court. They are Kelcy Meyer, Brittany Frew, Krysta Page, Carry Thibaut, Megan DeSouza, Pat Avery and Cheyenne Sibley.
With the new volunteers joining the ranks, it brings the total of Churchill County CASA volunteers to 22.
