CASA volunteers learn about adoption procedures

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Court Appointed Special Advocates hosted an important Lunch and Learn Wednesday for volunteers.

A speaker went over the policies and procedures of adoption.

Executive Director for the Second Judicial District of CASA Donna Lamb Bowyer said it's vital volunteers are well-informed to speak on behalf of these children.

"Some periods of time are important in this whole process of adopting a child that's in foster care," Bowyer said. "Today we'll learn about some of those issues."

Bowyer said that the CASA volunteers are the eyes and ears for the court and the voice for the child.

She said they are always in need of more volunteers.

They try to hold these informational meetings once a month for their volunteers.
