PREBLE COUNTY — Preble County CASA has a growing need for Court Appointed Special Advocates for children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
According to CASA officials, these advocates can change a child’s story in Preble County for the better. There is still time to sign up for classes to be a part of this program.
Court Appointed Special Advocates for children are local volunteers serving as the voice of children who are abused or neglected. Individuals might make a great CASA volunteer if they:
•Are at least 21 years of age
•Can pass a background check
•Have 5-10 hours of free time a month
•Are passionate about helping children and families.
The pre-service training is 30 hours and then volunteers need 12 hours per year of continuing education. Classes will begin in February.
For more information on becoming a volunteer, contact CASA at 937-456-2885 or email [email protected].
