Family Court seeks child advocates for training program The Family Court of the state of Delaware is looking for people who can make a difference in the life of an abused, neglected or de- pendent child. The Court Appoint- ed Special Advocates (CASA) Program is seeking qualified adults to serve as CASA volun- teers. CASAs are trained commu- nity volunteers assigned by Fami- ly Court judges to represent the best interests of abused, neglected or dependent children who are the subject of court proceedings. As an official of the court, the volun- teer conducts an independent in- vestigation into the child's life and presents facts and recommen- dations to a judge in written re- ports and verbal testimony. The CASA advocates for the best in- terests in the child by investigat- ing and monitoring a case until the child is provided a safe and per- manent home. CASAs have varied profession- al, educational and ethnic back- grounds. They are selected, trained, supervised and evaluated by program coordinators from the Family Court staff. Program attor- neys provide legal representation .... for CASAs and legal advice for the program. In 1997, 156 CASA volunteers served 461 children in Delaware. A five-day training session for volunteers in Sussex County is scheduled for Nov. 2,4, 6, 10 and 12, in the Family Court building in Georgetown. To volunteer, or for more infor- mation, call 856-5309. The appli- cation deadline is Oct. 21. Your community is reflected in the Cape Gazette. Call 645-7700 to subscribe.
