CASA Holds First Swearing-In Ceremony
The Pike County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program held its first Swearing-In Ceremony on April 4, at the Pike County Courthouse. Eleven individuals were sworn in during the ceremony and are now able to serve local children in dependency court proceedings as volunteer advocates.
National CASA is a non-profit organization that aims to connect children being served by dependency courts with volunteer advocates who collect pertinent information about a child’s case to help the court act in the best interest of the child.
CASA has been operating for over 40 years. It has 950 state organizations and local programs in 49 states with 93,225 dedicated volunteers allowing CASA to serve 242,236 children annually.
