Hill Country CASA seeking volunteers

Contributed

There are over 200 children from our area who have been removed from their family homes because of abuse or neglect. These children are now in the custody of Child Protective Services with oversight by area courts. Hill Country CASA is once again recruiting community volunteers to work with the courts as advocates for these children.
Potential CASA volunteers do not need a legal background but must complete scheduled training sessions and submit to criminal and CPS background checks before being sworn in by the judiciary as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
Hill Country CASA is a member on good standing of both Texas CASA and the National CASA Association. The local office has been operating as a community supported nonprofit organization since 1989. Local volunteers who participate in the CASA program contribute thousands of hours each year to the service of area children.
New CASA volunteer training will begin on Tuesday, April 23, and will run three days a week for two weeks. New CASA advocates will be ready to serve the courts in early May.
Registration and pre-training interview are necessary.
To inquire about Hill Country CASA's program or to pre-register for the upcoming volunteer training sessions call 830-896-2272, e-mail hccasa@ktc.com or stop by the CASA office at 309 Earl Garrett Street in Kerrville.
