New CASA Volunteers Sworn In

More than a dozen children from Banks, Barrow, and Jackson County in the foster care system will now have an advocate to speak for them in court. These Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers will be paired with the children Thursday.

However, 17 new advocates still will not provide one advocate for each child. Annette Bates, executive director of CASA in Jackson County, said nearly 70 children in these counties still need someone to represent them.

Bates also said Jackson County will begin training new volunteers in January and anyone interested should come to the first training session.
