CASA holding information hour
CASA of Carson City will hold an information hour at 5:30 p.m. April 21, at the Carson City Juvenile Court. Those interested are invited to attend and learn about becoming a CASA advocate. CASA advocates volunteer to serve children removed from the home and taken into temporary state custody due to abuse or neglect. Being a CASA advocate requires patience, caring, research, writing and communication. To learn more, see http://www.casaofcc.org, http://www.nevadacasa.org or http://www.nationalcasa.org or come to the information hour.
