Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a volunteer group in place that helps judges determine child abuse and neglect cases.
CASA of Harrison County held informative sessions on Wednesday for those interested in becoming a volunteer.
“Really it just takes someone who has a passion for children. On average volunteers spend 10 hours per month with an appointed family, more or less depending on the child’s needs,” said Alisha Madia, executive director.
