Eddy County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is seeking caring, committed citizens to become advocates for abused or neglected children living in foster care.

These children have been placed in protective custody of the state by the court.

CASA provides the training for volunteers who will be looking out for children’s best interests. Three to four hours per week and an interest in being a powerful voice for these vulnerable children is required.

Volunteers must be 21 or older, have a high school diploma or GED, and pass a criminal background check.

Training is scheduled to begin in the spring. For more information, call 746-6077; email [email protected]; visit www.eddycountycasa.org; or visit the CASA office at 605 W. Main St.
