The Child Advocacy Board is seeking volunteers in Grundy County to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA's) On any given day in Iowa, over 5,000 children are in foster care. Their ages range from a few hours old to the majority age of 18 years. Situations also vary, from neglected or abused children to children who have special needs. But all have in common the need for stability and the right to permanency. CASA volunteers advocate on behalf of the children only and they provide a voice for the child in Juvenile Court. Volunteer advocates will receive professional training and continuing education to learn about the child welfare system in Iowa, and the CASA roles of investigator, reporter and monitor.
