 We All Can Play a Part in Strengthening Families: April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Natchitoches, LA – April 2010 – CASA of Central Louisiana works in the Natchitoches, Sabine, and Red River Parishes in support of the 10, 11th, and 39th District Court Systems. Our mission is ensure that every child involved in the foster case system find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible where they can thrive. 

CASA of Central Louisiana is hosting, along with co-sponsors, the 1st Annual CASA Awareness Social on Thursday, April 29, 2010, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. This event will raise awareness of the CASA program and the work our volunteers do within the communities we serve. It will, also, include guest speakers, food and entertainment, and a silent auction. This is an opportunity for citizens in our community to be informed on how child abuse and neglect affects our communities and how we can get involved as a CASA Volunteer.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, CASA of Central Louisiana encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making Natchitoches, Sabine, and Red River communities a better place for children and families. By ensuring that children have the resources they need and assisting with providing families with the knowledge, skills, and resources they may need to care for their children, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening our families and our communities.
