Every day, children across Charles, Calvert and St. Mary’s counties are removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect. Although Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) continue to serve more of these children each year, the need for CASA volunteers continues to grow as more children enter the child welfare and court systems. CASA volunteers work one-on-one with an abused or neglected child, advocating for his or her best interests. CASA volunteers don’t require any specific education. All they need is compassion, objectivity, and a commitment to children. Anyone interested in becoming a CASA Volunteer should visit http://center-for-children.org/programs/court-appointed-special-advocate-casa/ for more information, or reach out to the CASA of Southern Maryland email@example.com or call NaQuita Coates, Training and Recruitment Specialist, at 410-535-3047.
