YOU Make the DifferenceLANCASTER, PA (March 1, 2016) – One of the most effective social structures capable of addressing child abuse in Lancaster County is a unified community.
That community does not exist without YOU.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County is a program that recruits, trains, and supports citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.
Volunteer advocates – empowered directly by the courts – offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. For the next three months, CASA of Lancaster County is providing you an opportunity to be a part of the community working to make a difference in the life of a child who has suffered abuse and neglect.
Please join us at one of our upcoming Community Awareness Sessions on Engagement (C.A.S.E.) for CASA.
- Tuesday, April 19, 12:00 PM – San Juan Bautista, 425 S. Duke St., Lancaster PA
- Tuesday, May 17, 12:00 PM – Lancaster County Community Foundation, 24 W. King St., Suite 201, Lancaster PA
- Tuesday, June 21 , 6:00 PM – CASA, 53 N. Duke St., Suite 218, Lancaster PA
Come see audiovisual testimony from youth who have had an active child advocate in their lives during their time in foster care. As children, these young adults were positively affected by CASA. They will share the long-term impact of having a qualified, compassionate adult fight for and protect their rights. CASAs advocate for a child to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
C.A.S.E. for CASA is 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 emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. CASA of Lancaster County provides court appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children in the belief that every child deserves a safe, nurturing, and permanent home.
