Currently in Jefferson Parish, there are 37 children waiting for an Advocate to step up and be their voice in court; these children are counting on you. CASA Jefferson is offering an in-person Advocate training for individuals who want to make a difference in a child's life.

Trainees will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays January 5 through February 2 from 6:30-9pm and Saturday January 31 from 9am-4:30pm. To register or for more information contact CASA Jefferson at 504-533-8757 or eschneider@casajefferson.org.
