CASA of Grayson County is looking for volunteers who want to help children that find themselves involved in the legal system through no fault of their own. Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children go into court to speak for children whose voices wouldn’t necessarily be heard otherwise. CASAs talk about what the child’s best interest is and judges listen.
In order to become a CASA, ordinary people go through training to help them identify the kinds of information that can make a difference in a case. Those training sessions are starting on June 5 in Grayson County. The training is twice a week for three weeks from 5-8:30 p.m. at the CASA office, 1411 W. Houston St. in Sherman.
The dates for the June training are: June 5 and 7, June 12 and 14, and June 19 and 21.
For anyone interested in learning more about CASA, the agency has a “Lunch and Learn” information session from noon to 1 p.m. on June 13 at the CASA office. Participants can bring their lunch and CASA will provide drinks and desserts.
