The Fourth Judicial District Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, has received a $3,000 grant from the New Mexico Children’s Foundation. This is the second year the Children’s Foundation has awarded $3,000 to CASA in Las Vegas.
The funding will be used to recruit, train and retain volunteers who work with children who are living in foster care because of abuse or neglect. The program currently has 17 active volunteers, but more are needed.
