Volunteers are wanted to advocate for local children involved in the foster care system.

Whitman County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program is looking for five individuals who could work between 10 and 15 hours per month.

A CASA volunteer visits his or her child and communicates with others to make recommendations for the child’s future, writes reports to the court and attends court hearings on the child’s behalf.

The Whitman County program currently has 10 volunteers.

Volunteers must complete 30 hours of training to learn about child welfare, the court system and skills for working with families. They are asked to commit to at least 18 months to provide stability for the children they serve.
