CASA of Saline County will host Hands around the Courthouse on April 23rd at NOON at the Saline County Courthouse. CASA board members and staff, the Judge, Attorneys, Social Agencies, Law Enforcement and members of the community will be gathering to help raise awareness of child abuse prevention. We would like to invite you to come and join us in supporting Child Abuse Prevention Month.
CASA of Saline County currently serves 51% of the children who come into care. “CASA would like to be serving 100% of the children that come into care but don’t have enough volunteers” stated Trina Irwin-Weir, Executive Director. If Hands around the Courthouse inspires even just one person to speak up for an abused or neglected child, then one child’s life may be saved.
According to Trina Irwin-Weir, Executive Director, for CASA of Saline County, “CASA is a needed organization. Abused and neglected children need a voice in the court system and CASA is that voice. Hopefully, concerned citizens will take a moment to come to the Saline County Courthouse on April 23, 2019 at Noon to acknowledge the plight of abused and neglected children of Saline County.”
For more information on becoming a CASA volunteer or to schedule an interview, please contact Trina Irwin at 618-253-3355 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
