April 2017 Graduating Advocate Class

CASA of Titus, Camp and Morris Counties is pleased to announce the graduating class of April 2017: from left to right, Masika Ray, Kathy Peoples, and Adam Wyly. The new CASA volunteer advocates took an oath before the Honorable Virginia Schnarr in Titus County Child Protective Services Court ton Tuesday, April 4, 2017.  All of the CASA advocates completed 30 hours of training and court room observation.  Each CASA volunteer advocate will be assigned a case that may include a child or sibling group that was removed from their home due to abuse and neglect.   CASA volunteers work for the best interest of the child/children making sure they have a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible. As the spokesperson for CASA, Cobern expressed the urgency in recruiting and training advocates that are as diverse as the children we serve.  The church families in Mt Pleasant, Pittsburg, Daingerfield, Omaha, Naples and Lone Star need to know that there are opportunities for them to make a difference in a child’s life.  “CASA has 72 programs in the state of Texas and our CASA program is the 71st.” Cobern stated.  We work with a great team of Attorney’s, CPS Investigators and CPS Caseworkers on a daily basis.  CASA volunteers are citizens in our community, just like you, that want to make a difference in a child/children’s life while they are removed from their families and placed in foster care.  If you want to make a difference in a child’s life contact Michelle Cobern at michelle.wdrff@gmail.com or call 903-767-3679.  Every child has a chance, it’s YOU!
