Volunteer Opportunity! 

If you're looking for a great volunteer opportunity, this is it. A CASA ("Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is assigned to one family case at a time to monitor and report to the Child Protection court on a periodic basis - usually every six months but sometimes more frequently if there are serious problems. CASAs have provided invaluable information and recommendations to me over the years.  I call my CASAs "the eyes and ears of the court."

Please give this serious consideration. If you have friends and business associates who might be interested, please encourage them to consider this important volunteer opportunity. The time commitment is not overwhelming, and the camaraderie and mutual support among the CASAs is tremendous. The CASA organization in Cook County is short-handed and has temporarily stopped taking assignments.Please visit their website for more information or to volunteer.
Thank you -
John Huff
