CASA of McHenry County plans recruitment nights

McHENRY – CASA of McHenry County offers a way to volunteer and give a voice to abused and neglected children in the county.

The agency will have two informational sessions for prospective volunteers to learn how they can become advocates for children.

CASA of McHenry County is a nonprofit organization that trains and supports volunteers to speak and act as advocates for abused and neglected children.

They are trained to work within the child welfare and family court systems and are appointed by judges to individual cases.

With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely as others to languish in the foster-care system and twice as likely to find a safe and permanent home.

The first advocate recruitment night will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Crystal Lake Public Library, 126 Paddock St., Crystal Lake.

The second recruitment night will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., Woodstock.

Current advocates will answer questions and share experiences.

For information about the event or to learn about CASA, email jorie@casamchenrycounty.org or call 815-363-5920.
