Local Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers were sworn in Aug. 19 by Judge Karin Bonicoro.
Now that their CASA training is complete, the volunteers will be assigned children who have been removed from abusive homes and placed in the court system. The volunteers act as a voice for the children, speak up for them in court and advocate for their best interest.
CASA of Central Texas, Inc. trains and supports community volunteers in Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe and Hays Counties.
Another training is starting soon. If you would like to volunteer, contact Training Coordinator Debbie Haynes at (512) 392-3578 or visit www.casacentex.org.
