Save the Date: How To Become a CASA

Permanent Link | Posted by Front Desk on February 5, 2013 4:56 PM



There are many LGBT youth in the foster care system in the DC area that need your help. A CASA is a Court Appointed Special Advocate to children in the DC foster care system. There are over 2,000 cases of child abuse and neglect in the DC Family Court system. It is the goal of CASA for Children of DC to recruit and train a volunteer advocate to serve every one of these children.

Join The DC Center and CASA DC in this informational session on how to become a CASA. This event will be held on Tuesday, March 26th from 6PM-7 PM at The DC Center (1318 U Street, NW).

Some of the duties of a CASA are: appearing at court hearings to make recommendations to the Court, continuing contacts with child, family, social workers and others to monitor court orders and overall being a great mentor to the child. We desperately need our community to step up to the plate and be there for our youth in the system.

RSVP for How to Become a CASA here.
