Court Appointed Special Advocates are wanted to stand up for foster children.

CASA Deep East Texas will have its volunteer fall training starting on September 17th. Participants will learn how to advocate for foster children while adults maneuver them through court proceedings.

"Each Tuesday and Thursday for two weeks we will have classroom training for two and a half hours,” said Tonya Harry, the executive director of CASA Deep East Texas. “We have some new volunteers that are signed up and we would love to have some more."

Special arrangements can also be made to receive the direction during the day. CASA Deep East Texas serves Nacogdoches, Shelby and San Augustine counties.
