Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is now accepting applications until December 31 for their 2018 Annual Countywide Volunteer Training. The training begins January 15 in Buellton. Volunteers are matched one-on-one with a child in the foster care system. They spend 6-12 hours each month getting to know the child and advocating for the child's best interest. For more information about becoming a volunteer and training dates email Crystal Sullins at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit CASA at www.sbcasa.org.
