Greenwood Newsletter January 18,2018
As you all know we have had some icy weather the last two days and I want to give out a big THANK YOU to the fire and rescue department for putting out the following letter to the community full of information regarding inclement weather... This letter was forwarded to me and I also know there are many older citizens who do not utilize a computer and unless it is mailed to them they would not know this information so please copy this letter and give it to ANYONE who may not have gotten ahold of this information...

Cass County CASA Advocates Needed!
Cass Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is currently recruiting CASA advocates to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in Cass County. The next training session is scheduled for January 2017 for five weeks. We are also seeking male volunteers as more than 60% of our children are male. What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do? Each CASA volunteer is screened, trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service training. The training consists of 15 hours of online training and 15 hours of in-person training. Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and interests of abused and neglected children are being met.Who are CASA volunteers? Our active volunteers are individuals from our community who work part-time, full-time or are retired. Volunteers commit to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been terminated.Please call Debbie Green, Volunteer Coordinator at (402) 296-9521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and become a CASA volunteer today.
