Meet Our Volunteers in Sierra County
It has become almost cliché to say that "the courts are overworked," but that doesn't stop Rio Grande Valley CASA volunteers from stepping into the courtroom to speak up for the childrens best interests. RGV's Court Appointed Special Advocates are growing in numbers as well as in heart. These community volunteers are introduced to the CASA program and trained by staff to be the "Voice of a Child" within the 7th Judicial Court System in Central New Mexico. RGVCASA is proud to welcome their current volunteers. RGVCASA would like to thank Lisa Todd, Yarrow Dankert, Tiffany Holmes, Ariel Davis, Blair Davidson and Maria Weir for stepping up and stepping in to this great advocational program. RGVCASA is looking for about 10 total volunteers in each of the Sierra, Socorro and Torrance Counties to assist with the program and advocate for the children. Volunteers usually spend about 8-10 hours per month working on specific cases, however, the work they do can have a tremendous impact on the youth involved. If you or someone you know would be interested in joining RGVCASA's volunteer program, please contact Destiny Mitchell, 575-740-7542, 894-4437, firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by our office at 311 N. Broadway for more information. Thank you so much to all of our volunteers, we have the utmost faith in them. And thank you to the community for your support of our program, we really appreciate it.
