Last Chance to Be a CASA Volunteer Until 2014
Lancaster, PA (August 2, 2013) - Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County is providing you multiple opportunities to make a difference in the life of a child who has suffered abuse and neglect. Join us on Wednesday, August 14 at First Presbyterian Church, 140 East Orange Street, in Lancaster PA or on Tuesday, August 27 at the CASA office, 1905 Old Philadelphia Pike, also in Lancaster PA. Each day CASA is hosting two sessions – one at 12:00 pm and a second session at 6:00 pm. The sessions are free and open to the public and are the first step in volunteering with CASA.
CASA will present not only the mission and vision of the organization, but address common myths that surround children in foster care and discuss how you can lift up a child’s voice, a child’s life.
Come see audiovisual testimony from youth who have had an active child advocate in their lives during their childhood. As children, these young adults were touched by CASA and will share the long term impact of having a qualified, compassionate adult fight for and protect their right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
Executive Director, Jessica Laspino stated, "We are excited about providing the community multiple opportunities to learn more about CASA of Lancaster County and how we impact your neighborhood. CASA is central to fulfilling society’s most fundamental obligation to children – the right to grow up in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.”
The sessions are free of charge and open to the public. RSVP is required due to limited seating. We know how important your time is and our program will not exceed 60 minutes. To reserve your seat, please contact CASA by calling (717)208-3280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
