|CASA plans inaugural event|
CASA of Northeast Louisiana will hold the inaugural "Stand Up For A Child So They All Stand A Chance" demonstration at the American Legion building at Forsythe Park from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4.
Members of the CASA of Northeast Louisiana staff, along with other members of the community, will stand on the front steps of the American Legion Hall to demonstrate the need for someone to "stand up" for abused and neglected children in Northeast Louisiana. There will also be over 100 life-size cardboard cutouts of children on display to represent the hundreds of children who are abused and neglected each year in Ouachita Parish.
CASA of Northeast Louisiana encourages community members to stop by and join in the demonstration and "stand up" for the children of this region.
CASA of Northeast Louisiana also encourages community members to "stand up" for a child all year long by getting involved with the CASA program and becoming an advocate for a child in need. Advocates become the eyes and ears of the court, providing important information about a child in need so that the best possible home for that child can be found. Children who receive the help of an advocate are much more likely to find a permanent placement than those children who are left without an advocate, and therefore, without a voice in court.
Currently, more than 200 community members serve as advocates with CASA of Northeast Louisiana and speak up for over 400 local children. However, there are many more children in need of the support and help that an advocate can provide.
To get involved with "Stand Up For A Child So hey All Stand A Chance," please call Anna Thomas at 398-0945.
