CASA in need of volunteers

The Ascension Parish CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program needs volunteers to be the voice for innocent children who are victims of abuse and neglect. CASA depends on volunteers from the community to make a difference. The only requirements are that you have an interest in speaking up for a child, must be at least 21 years old and the ability to invest 1-2 hours a week advocating for an abused child.

The next CASA training starts in Gonzales on Feb. 3, at 6 p.m. For more information, contact Shannon Guidry at 647-2005 or visit  www.childadv.net.
