At the 2017 Friends of Children Breakfast, 45 new Court Appointed Special Advocates, known as CASA Volunteers, took the oath administered by Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge John Williams. They and their fellow volunteers, from all walks of life, advocate for individual children who have been abused and neglected.
ProKids Board President John Hands welcomed the newest CASA Volunteers at the event saying, “CASA Volunteers …are the heart and soul of ProKids.”
Judge Williams, just before he administered the oath, thanked all the volunteers. “You have chosen to not be on the sidelines, and we are grateful,” he said. “Your commitment to a safe, permanent, and nurturing home for every child is a daily reminder that every child matters.”
There are now 225 such volunteers… but so many more children to serve. ProKids is always looking for more volunteers who can speak up for children, creating the ProKids difference.
