Welcome to our Spring 2013 Advocate Class!

 

Twelve new CASA Volunteer Advocates are being sworn in April 15th and will be assigned by juvenile judges to advocate for at least 15 additional abused and neglected children in the Brown County court system.

New CASA volunteers mention some of their reasons for becoming an advocate include, ”I believe that every child should have a chance to get a good start in life,“ ”I feel I can make a difference,“ ”To help create better opportunities for children to succeed.“

The new CASA volunteer Advocates are:
