Claremont recently graduated eight eager CASA volunteers after 40 hours of pre-training, and now they’re ready to begin the next steps in advocating for the best interests of our state’s most vulnerable children. Pictured (left to right) are Deb Billings, Beth Danyluk, Laura Salas, Dave White, Doug Bramlde, Heidi Zarsadias, Barbara Lynch, and Laurie Farr. These are eight of our nearly 500 CASAs that are working passionately to advocate for the best interests of our children who need it most.
These are eight everyday New Hampshire residents, some with jobs, some with kids, some retired empty-nesters. Regardless of their different stories, they all had one thing in common: they want to help children who are in need of a caring, compassionate adult to speak on their behalf. Their dedication and passion for children are shared among themselves, and maybe you as well. If you’re are interested in making the world of a difference to a child, click here to view the 2019 CASA training sessions and apply today to get the process of becoming an advocate started.
At the end of training, each new volunteer advocate was asked to write a message to a CASA kid from the sample case they simulated. Read their words of encouragement below! Congratulations and welcome to the following advocates, and thank you for your dedication to New Hampshire’s children.
