CASA looking for volunteers to work with abused, neglected children

They get to know the children and can advocate for what’s in the best interest of the children

CASA Interview

SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Northwest Louisiana’s Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program needs volunteers to be the voice for abused and neglected children.

Volunteers are recruited and trained so they can advocate what’s in the best interest of the child. CASA volunteers get to know their children, and make recommendations to the judge. The goal is to find each child a safe, permanent home.

You can hear more in our interview with CASA recruiter Melinda Wallace from her interview on KSLA News 12 at Noon.
