Take the Time to Listen…Really Listen
LANCASTER, PA (June 6, 2017) – In this world, we sometimes struggle to be heard. Imagine being surrounded by people who are constantly speaking and talking over you? What if those same people made decisions for you without ever asking for your opinion?
Listening has the power to affect change, especially in the lives of children in the foster care system. As a CASA advocate, you may be the only one a child can talk to and turn to for answers. CASA volunteers listen first. Then they act. You will be a constant in their lives and a voice for them in the courtroom.
Whether you are still in high school, finishing college, starting a new family, enjoying retirement, etc., listening applies to you. Attend one of our Community Awareness Sessions on Engagement (C.A.S.E) to learn how you can advocate for an abused or neglected child. Are you willing to give these children a voice - and a chance for a better life?
