CASA Hires New Volunteer Manager
LANCASTER, PA (March 2, 2018) – Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County recruits, trains, and provides community-volunteers to advocate for children in foster care. Overseeing these volunteers are Volunteer Managers, and CASA is pleased to announce their newest manager, Marshall Fischer.
Fischer, Lancaster County born and raised, comes to CASA after spending the last few years teaching English as a second language in Japan to elementary and middle schoolers. “I enjoyed working with my students, and although I’ll miss them, I was ready to return home,” stated Fischer. “I’m thrilled to be returning to nonprofit work, and even more excited to be making a positive difference in the life of children in our community.” Before teaching, Fischer worked at two other local nonprofits: Tabor and Transitional Living Center (TLC). Fischer is a graduate of Penn Manor High School, and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Global Geography from Millersville University. Though he enjoys traveling, having visited Brazil, China, and Switzerland to name a few, Fischer’s true passion is contributing back to society and making sure “I’m doing something good.”
CASA’s need for more staff stems from the growing number of children entering Lancaster County’s foster care system due to abuse and neglect. With a CASA, children spend less time in foster care, and receive more help while in the system.
