The Fire Science and Litigation Section is pleased to continue the good work of DRI Cares through CASA for Children DC. CASA DC connects specially trained volunteer Court Appoint-ed Special Advocates with vulnerable and at-risk youth in foster care and the juvenile justice system.
CASA volunteers are appointed and sworn in by judges in order to fully investigate a youth’s circumstances and advocate for an outcome in the youth’s best interest. CASA volunteers develop a mentor-like relationship with their youth and advocate for greater outcomes and the opportunity to thrive.
A CASA speaker will share more information on this organization in a short presentation. Donations for CASA will be collected during the seminar. Please consider contributing to CASA’s good work for youth. Learn more about CASA and donate.
