CASA of Titus, Camp and Morris Counties is pleased to announce the graduating class of October 2017: from left to right, Mardel “Mardi” Shifflet, Stephanie Hayes, Kristin Ellermann, Shellie Nelson, Yarsheka Howard, Sonya Mata and Brant Mitchell. The new CASA volunteer advocates took an oath before the Honorable Virginia Schnarr in Titus County Child Protective Services Court on October 3, 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. 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 call 903-767-3679 or visit becomeacasa.org. Every child has a chance, it’s YOU!
