To The Daily Sun,
CASA of N.H. provides children and youth who have been abused or neglected a volunteer advocate. This volunteer advocate gets to really know the child by meeting with them at least a month and also by speaking to the various adults involved in their life. Not only are the volunteers showing the child that there is an adult on their side who has so much hope for them and is striving to get them into safe and permanent home but they are also representing the child's best interest in court proceedings; approximately every three months.
Unfortunately, we are not able to serve every child in need. We have some amazing volunteer advocates, but not enough to help all of the kids who need it. A new training session begins October 19 in Plymouth. If you are interested please give me a call at 536-1663 or complete the application that can be found online at www.casanh.org
