Every child deserves a safe permanent home. Be the voice that helps them find one. A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained volunteer child advocate who is appointed by a Family Court Judge to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children. It’s a way for individuals in the community to make a difference in the life of an abused child.
The first step in making a difference is the desire to do so. To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Family &Youth at 337-436-9533. Potential volunteers from Allen or Jefferson Davis Parishes can contact email@example.com or call 337-824-8036.
