Child advocate training to begin this month

Make a lifelong difference for a vulnerable child by becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for abused and neglected children.

You will investigate a child's history, advocate for services and appropriate placement, and ultimately make recommendations -- to the judge -- in that child's best interest.

The next three-day CASA training will be Oct. 14, 21 and 29, from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.

Attendance all three days is required.
