Please join us on March 21 at 6 pm on Zoom for a sneak peek at an important resource coming soon to Mendocino County. Brandy Maxwell, Recruitment & Training Coordinator for CASA, will share exciting info about the soon to be launched 24/7 Help website & app.
What is CASA? A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained volunteer appointed by a judicial officer to provide advocacy for a child who is under the jurisdiction of the courts due to abuse or neglect. A CASA volunteer serves as the “eyes and ears” of the judge for children in foster care. Volunteers spend time with children, monitor needed services, and provide childfocused recommendations to the court based on the best interest of the children they serve.
The CASA organization has been training, matching, and supporting these volunteers since 1994. Now CASA has taken on another community project to fill a need long felt by youth, families, individuals, and agencies: a 24-hour referral service. The new website, called 24/7 Help, will also have an Android/Apple application that lists all the resources for youth and adults in Mendocino and Lake Counties. This app will be easy for all to use.
24/7HELP is a community information and referral service that helps Mendocino and Lake County residents. Operating 24 hours per day, seven days per week, every day of the year, CASA helps individuals and families find resources that are available to them locally and provide connections to critical services that improve and save lives.
