Training for advocates for children

Children In Placement is seeking volunteers to become Court Appointed Special Advocates for children.

Advocate volunteers serve as Guardians Ad Litem for abused and neglected children in the court system. Each volunteer must complete a five-day training in all aspects of the child protection process. Volunteers are needed for the Bridgeport and Stratford Court.

The next training session is in Bristol, Nov. 12,13,14,19 and 20 from 9:30 to 4:30. For details, call Lisa D. Fimbers at 203-579-3643.

“CASA volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary work for abused and neglected children,” said Children In Placement.
