(Joplin, MO) – Jasper County CASA will be swearing in their new class of volunteers on February 23. They have completed the 30-hour curriculum and will become official Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). After volunteers are sworn in, they receive a case and begin advocating for a child or sibling group in foster care in Jasper County. By swearing in these new volunteers, Jasper County CASA will be able to serve more children and offer them a better chance at permanency.
Court Appointed Special Advocates are community members who choose to advocate for abused and neglected children and help them in their journey through foster care. If you are interested in becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate but want to know more, please visit jascocasa.org/events to sign up for a 30-minute information session where we talk about our organization and answer any questions you may have.
