Become child advocate, make a difference

As the president of the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) board, I would like to urge the citizens of Ogle County to consider becoming a CASA volunteer.

CASA serves the children of Lee, Ogle and Carroll counties. Court-appointed special advocates are trained individuals who are appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of a child in court. These children are at risk because of abuse and neglect in situations they do not deserve to be in.

A CASA volunteer provides a judge with factual information regarding the child to help the court make positive decisions for the child’s future. 

Please consider becoming involved with this worthy program. You can make the difference in the life of a child. Please visit our website at www.casaleecarroll.com or visit us on Facebook.
