On April 24, Kathleen Aulner from Alexandria, Stephanie Bolan from Reliance, and Charles Isaac from Mitchell were sworn-in by the Honorable Judge Patrick Smith to become representatives of the court. These new CASA advocates successfully went through 30 hours of training at CASA before being sworn-in as representatives of the court.

First Circuit CASA nonprofit organization was incorporated 17 years ago to serve abused and neglected children in the area.

CASA advocates make sure that children who are part of the Judicial system are not forgotten. They visit foster homes, group homes, shelters, and detention facilities to see the at-risk children assigned to them. The children are sometimes afraid, angry, and all alone. They count on their CASA volunteer to be there for them. These visits give the court a complete picture of the children's lives through the volunteer's court report.

For more information on how to make a difference in a child's life, call CASA at (605) 996-1212 or visit the website at www.mitchellcasa.org .
