06/27/2018: "Join In Recognizing Court Appointed Special Advocate Volunteers"


Please join in recognizing the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers who serve in dependency proceedings in San Juan County Superior Court, and in recognizing the importance of family reunification. Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. San Juan County Superior Court Jury Room San Juan County Courthouse. The community is welcome. Light refreshments will be served.

he National CASA Association, together with its state and local members, supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.

CASA/GAL volunteers are a liaison between the court and the community. Most citizens do not know what goes on behind the closed doors of the juvenile and family courts of this nation -but the CASA/GAL volunteers do. The CASA/GAL volunteer sees the pain and trauma of the child first hand. CASA volunteers understand the law and the court process.

The CASA/GAL volunteer guides the child through the labyrinth and gives the child emotional support and comfort during a time of crisis. The CASA/GAL volunteer investigates the case and offers the Judge information in order to make an appropriate disposition -frequently this is information that no one else has located. The CASA/GAL volunteer knows what disposition the community expects and demands that the system be accountable to uphold the best interest of the child.
