Clinton County CASA Director Tarah Mongold joined the Kiwanis Club of Wilmington for lunch on May 19 to share what CASA — Court Appointed Special Advocates — does for kids in Clinton County.

CASA volunteers are trained to listen to and advocate for the best interest of the children who are in the court systems as a result of abuse, neglect and/or dependency.

CASA volunteers spend about eight hours per month on their assigned cases. She further explained that no special experience is required to be a CASA volunteer. All you need is a desire to help, a willingness to learn and an ability to remain objective and committed to a child.

More CASA volunteers are needed to serve the youth in our community. Contact the CASA office at 937-383-1137 for more information.
