If you have put off becoming a volunteer guardian ad litem for an abused and neglected child, this Fall might be the right time to do the right thing. Richland County CASA has set up a series of trainings for Fall 2019. You must attend all 8 of the sessions, which are offered from either 3-5 pm or 6-8pm. You can choose what works for you. The sessions are scheduled in Sept., Oct and Nov. so there are plenty of options.
In addition you must complete an online application. To enroll or for more information contact the Pro Bono Program and we will send you all the details.
Richland County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) provides and represents Guardians ad Litem for abused and neglected children when their cases go to court. The Guardians are the voice of the abused children in the court room.
We have had more abused and neglected kids enter the system than ever before, and we desperately need more volunteers to advocate for these children. Please come out September 29th at Saluda Shoals Park and enjoy a family fun event and learn how you can become a superhero for abused children.
The event starts off with a 5K, with family-fun activities and food to follow. And….we just got word that the deputies of “Live PD” will be there with us! We are looking for people to participate in the event (running/walking the 5k), volunteer at the event, and/or sponsor foster children so that they can attend the event. You can register for the 5k here: https://www.strictlyrunning.com/gpuilGroupTip.asp?uRaceId=2883&uGroup
