If you can’t be a foster parent but want to help a child, you can become a special advocate to one of the half-million kids in the system.
CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, are trained volunteers who represent abused and neglected children in juvenile court. They stand up for the rights of the kids and make sure their cases don't fall between the cracks of the system.
"The social workers who are helping these kids are overworked. They're underpaid," Dr. Phil says. “By becoming a special advocate, you get some brief training, and you become the eyes and ears of the court, of the judge.”
I got more info on it in my email. The only thing I'm worried about is the 2 day training in Phoenix. Thats 3 hours from where I live and I would have to make arrangements for my son. I need to talk to my husband about it and get his support on this..
