New CASA volunteer sworn in at Slidell City Court
Recently, I had the honor to swear in Eleanor Rose Hunter of Slidell as a new Court Appointed Special Advocate following her graduation from training. It is always an uplifting occasion to welcome in a new CASA as they are vital to the Court and to our community.
 
CASA is a program administered by Youth Service Bureau. 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 YSB 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.
 
As I explain to the people of our community when I speak about Slidell City Court, 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. So if you would like to apply to join the next training class for CASA volunteers, please call the Youth Service Bureau at (985) 649-4092.
