New CASA volunteer sworn in
Recently, I had the honor of officially swearing in Mary Haile of Slidell, who is the newest Court Appointed Special Advocate at Slidell City Court following her graduation from training.
 
The need for CASA volunteers continues for the children served through Slidell City Court. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a CASA or in joining the next training class for CASA volunteers, call the Youth Service Bureau at (985) 649-4092.
 
CASA, a program administered by Youth Service Bureau, serves a vital function in the community. As a CASA, volunteers each work on one child’s case at a time, serving as the child’s advocate in all court proceedings until their case concludes. Applicants must be objective, culturally-aware, emotionally stable, diplomatic individuals capable of networking with social service agencies and be willing to undergo extensive criminal background checks, says YSB Director Mary Slazer. Those accepted participate in training to learn how to serve as effective volunteer advocates for quality treatment and services for children in State custody as well as to serve as a child’s voice in court. Minimum age is 21.
 
CASA volunteers are the eyes and the ears of the court. They are the only people involved in the child’s case who have absolute purity of purpose. For many children, they are the first champion they’ve ever had in their life.
