CASA seeks volunteers.

HART — Do you care about abused or neglected children in our community? Are you capable of making a commitment to a child and advocate for them as they work their way through the courts and social service agencies? If so, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Oceana, a program of The Fountain Hill Center, is looking for you.

​Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are trained volunteers appointed by the judge to represent the best interest of child(ren) in the court system due to abuse or neglect. A child with a CASA is more likely to succeed in school, less likely to reenter foster care, and will most likely reach permanency sooner. ​

Volunteer training starts soon. Contact Emily for more information via email at [email protected]; by phone at 616-796-4658; or find Oceana County CASA on Facebook.
