From the blog: A special request from CASA
SCAN’s CASA volunteers are an incredibly special group of people. Last year, 79 individuals volunteered over 6,100 hours to advocate for 165 children in the Alexandria and Arlington court systems. They’re a diverse group — and it’s important they continue to be. We give a voice to a very diverse group of children: infants and teens, boys and girls, locally born & raised and recent immigrants. Having a volunteer base that includes male and bilingual volunteers is critical if we hope to continue speaking up for our community’s most at-risk children.
This winter, we’re working with CASA for Children of DC and CASA of Montgomery County MD to focus on the recruitment of male and bilingual volunteers. Know someone who might be interested? Please share the news; thousands of children in our region–especially young boys and Spanish-speaking children–are depending on it.
Of the more than 900 CASA programs across the country, six operate in our region. Click on a link below to learn more about the impact of CASAs in a specific local community and how you can help:
