CASA needs volunteers to help abused children in Van Zandt Co.

Posted: Updated:
VAN ZANDT COUNTY (KYTX) - Court Appointed Special Advocates for Kids of East Texas is expanding its ability to help abused and neglected children.

CASA has been serving Van Zandt County for years without a dedicated office.  Now the organization is partnering with First United Methodist Church in Canton to have a space for volunteers to do their work.

"We just simply do not have the number of volunteers in Van Zandt County that we need," CASA Executive Director Patty Garner said. "Our whole mission is to provide the trained volunteers to  advocate in court for abused an neglected children."


CASA is holding an open house for people interested in volunteering. It's on Tuesday July 8th from 1pm to 3pm at the First United Methodist Church in Canton.
