Welcome to our newest CASA
With the continuing high number of “Child In Need of Care” cases in the east St. Tammany area, it was of special significance to me to recently swear in Hiral Patel of Slidell, who has now officially become the newest Court Appointed Special Advocate at Slidell City Court following her graduation from training.
 
CASA volunteers are the eyes and the ears of the court. They are the only people involved in the child’s case who have absolute purity of purpose. For many children, they are the first champion they’ve ever had in their life.
 
The need for CASA volunteers continues for the children served through Slidell City Court. CASA, a program administered by Youth Service Bureau, serves a vital function in the community. As a CASA, volunteers each work on one child’s case at a time, serving as the child’s advocate in all court proceedings until their case concludes. 
 
Applicants must be objective, culturally-aware, emotionally stable, diplomatic individuals capable of networking with social service agencies and be willing to undergo extensive criminal background checks, according to CASA Director Mary Slazer. Those accepted participate in training to learn how to serve as effective volunteer advocates for quality treatment and services for children in State custody as well as to serve as a child’s voice in court. Minimum age is 21.
 
To join the next training class for CASA volunteers or for information, I encourage you to call the Youth Service Bureau at (985) 649-4092.
