Jackson County GAL/CASA is a nonprofit volunteer-powered program that provides advocacy to child victims of abuse and neglect to ensure they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
The organization currently has 47 volunteers and staff giving a voice to more than 100 children in Jackson County; however, the wait list continues to grow, as 75 children are waiting for a CASA volunteer.
If you have five to 10 hours per month to give an abused or neglected child a voice, you can become a CASA volunteer.
For information on the mystery dinner theater or becoming a CASA volunteer, contact Deena Personett at 812-569-2598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
