Transform a Foster Youth's World
LANCASTER, PA (07, 26, 2018) – Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County will be holding an August information session in Mount Joy for its summer 2018 training class beginning later in August. Information Sessions are an introduction and overview of the role of a CASA Volunteer Advocate.
CASA’s are community volunteers - just like you - who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children. Appointed by judges, they investigate and uncover the child’s needs and best interests. No special background or education is required. The training class will equip volunteers with the tools necessary to help these children, and you will be well supported by professional CASA staff member.
Studies have shown children with a CASA have a significantly better outlook then those without a CASA. They are more likely to find a safe and permanent home, spend less time in foster care, do better in schools, move less frequently, and receive more services while in the foster care system. CASA challenges you to begin making a lifelong difference for Lancaster County’s youth in foster care. Become a CASA.
Interested community members are invited to join us on Monday, August 6, 6:00 pm at Milanof-Schock Library, 1184 Anderson Ferry Rd, Mount Joy, PA 17552 to learn more about the role of a CASA Volunteer Advocate. Another information session is scheduled for Thursday, September 13, 12:00 pm at LGH Suburban Outpatient Pavilion, 2100 Harrisburg Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601.
These sessions are free of charge and open to the public. RSVP is required due to limited seating. To reserve your seat, please contact CASA by calling (717)208-3280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
