To The Daily Sun,
For the last seven years it has been my privilege to act as a voice for abused and neglected children in our state's court system. As a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer it is my responsibility to meet, at least monthly, with every child that I am assigned, to speak with their relevant service providers, teachers, caregivers etc. and to report to the court what is in the best interest of each child. In all honesty, it is not the easiest volunteer job in the world. However, the rewards when you see a child that now finds themselves in a safe and stable home is an incredible, soul-satisfying event.
As a CASA volunteer you would be provided both initial and on-going training, have access to an experienced and knowledgeable staff and get to work with some of the most dedicated professionals in the world, including family court judges, State DCYF workers, and family law attorneys just to name a few.
A training is scheduled to begin in Moultonborough on Oct. 12, and I sincerely hope that you will consider joining our ranks and making a difference in the lives of our abused and neglected children. Please go online to www.casanh.org or call (603) 626-4600 to learn more or to fill out an online application.
I look forward to working with you.
Martin J. (Marty) Cloran
CASA Peer Coordinator/ GAL
