CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 14 - July 20, 2000 - 31 Family Courrseeking child advocate volunteers The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program in the Family Court of the State of Delaware is seeking qualified adults to serve as CASA volun- teers. As trained members of the community, CASA volunteers are appointed by Family Court judges to represent the best interests of abused, neglected or dependent children who are the subject of court proceedings. The volunteer conducts an independent investi- gation into the child's life and presents facts and recommenda- tions to a judge in written reports and verbal testimony. CASA volunteers have varied professional, educational and eth- nic backgrounds. Program coordi- nators from the Family Court staff select, train, supervise and evalu- ate the volunteers. Program attor- neys provide legal representation for CASA volunteers and legal advice for the program. In 1999, approximately 165 CASA volunteers in Delaware served 501 children. However, half of Delaware's abused and neglected children still have no independent voice in court. The goal of the Family Court CASA program is to serve all of the abused and neglected children in the state. A required five-day training program for volunteers will be held on Oct. 11, 13, 16, 18 and 20 in Georgetown. For more information or to ap- ply to become a volunteer, call the CASA office at 856-5309. The ap- plication deadline is Sept. 15. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS: HOW DO YOU SELECT A PERSONAL IN JURY LAWYER? Jim Cresson photo New Jersey youth group spruces up Blockhouse Pond Park The Cape Region was rewarded this month for its years of hospitality to vacationing young members of West Side Presbyterian Church in Ridgewood, N.J., a bedroom community for those working in New York City. Thirty-eight youngsters participating in the church's Middle School Retreat came to Lewes for their annual Bible study and vacation during the last week of June and went to work building fences at Cape Henlopen State Park and weeding and sprucing up the grounds of Blockhouse Pond Park in Lewes. Not wanting any personal recog- nition for their effort, church group members said simply: "We're your guests every year, and we just wanted to say thanks."
