Lubbock volunteers step up for CASA kids

Posted: Updated:

CASA of the South Plains saw one of their largest groups complete training Monday. CASA, or court appointed special advocates, represent children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect.

Last month, they had to turn away new cases because they didn't have enough volunteers. But, once word got out, people started to step up, and Monday 26 volunteers who joined a March class wrapped up training.

"It's probably the second largest in our history, so we're very excited about that group completing the training and being assigned to the kids we have in foster care," says Jennie Hill who is a member of CASA.

Another class of 12 started training this month. CASA hopes that by May they will have enough volunteers to be able to take new cases again.
