This afternoon, while Stephanie and the girls read books at the Williamsburg Library, I gave my time to the staff at Colonial CASA. They had asked ahead of time if I would help with social media so it made more sense for the girls to stay behind on this one.
Colonial CASA (court appointed special advocates) works to ensure the best interest of abused and neglected children during legal proceedings. CASA volunteers (advocates) are assigned a child involved in a court case.
Each advocate is responsible for immersing him/herself in the life of a child, by maintaining contact with all involved - parents, social workers, school officials, healthcare providers, and others who are knowledgable about the child's history.
Juvenile Court Judges use reports from the advocates to help determine what is best for the child.
After learning about CASA, I helped clean up some old Facebook pages that a former employee had made and replaced them with a new and functioning page for the organization.
Have you ever been a court advocate?
