Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of NSM, serving the children of Jackson and DeKalb counties, is holding a Casino Night fundraiser.
Right now, they need five big raffle prizes and sponsors for game tables and to sell tickets to the event.
CASA of NSM provides advocacy, comfort, reassurance, protection and guidance to children navigating the legal system and procedures. There is a formal 30-hour training program, and upon completion, advocates are sworn in by a judge and qualified to be assigned to a case by the court. CASA of NSM currently has 18 volunteers who served 159 local children in the last year.
You can become a CASA volunteer, advocate about this organization, spread the word, participate in fundraisers and donate. Your funds go directly toward the training and outreach of more volunteers and the sustaining of this organization. CASA is a 501(c)3 organization, so those donations are tax-deductible. Because they operate only on a partial grant, the rest of their funding which is crucial to operations must come from donations or fundraising.
