On Thursday, October 16th Youth Court Judge Elise Deano swore in members of the Fall 2014 CASA training class. In total 16 new volunteers took an oath to serve children from Youth Court who are all victims of child abuse and neglect.
CASA volunteers are everyday citizens that are appointed by a judge to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
Mission and Goals
Recruit, train, and support a diverse network of Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers to provide abused and neglected children in our community with quality advocacy in the Hancock County court system and to secure them a safe, permanent, and nurturing home.
