CASA looking for volunteers

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Continental Divide will be holding its semi-annual volunteer training at the end of April.In addition to a lawyer and a social worker, CASA volunteers represent abused and neglected children in the court system.The advocate’s job is to make sure nothing is overlooked in the case and that the best interest of the child is always put first.CASA of the Continental Divide serves the Fifth Judicial District, including Summit, Eagle, Lake and Clear Creek counties.CASA is hoping to choose seven new people to join its current team of 25 volunteers.The application process is lengthy and involves an interview before selection into training, so CASA wants to remind people to apply early.Training begins April 30 and runs for two weeks with a total commitment of 30 hours.CASA would also like to remind people that charitable donations can be made on line 38 of the Colorado State Income Tax forms.To remain on the tax form in 2006, CASA needs to reach a goal of $150,000 statewide in donations.Interested volunteers should call CASA of the Continental Divide at (970) 513-9390.
