Juvenile Court Judge Charles Crandall recently swore in 22 new Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers and mentors who will be assigned to an abused, neglected or abandoned child or sibling group or to a young adult leaving foster care in San Luis Obispo County. CASA provided the new volunteers with 30 hours of initial training; each volunteer completed a thorough screening and background check.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout 2018, CASA of SLO County is a nonprofit organization that has been advocating for abused and neglected children within the court system. For more information, visit www.slocasa.org.
