Event to offer information about becoming child welfare advocate with Carson City CASA
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.
