Training begins on Thursday, March 31 and runs through the end of the April. Classes are two (2) Thursday evenings with four (4) Saturday sessions. Training will be held at the Northern Valley Catholic Social Service office in Redding [2400 Washington Avenue].
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!
CASA of Shasta County was founded in 2010, and is one of nearly 1,000 other CASA programs nationwide, with over 76,000 women and men serving as volunteers in these programs.
