McHenry- Looking to volunteer your time to give a voice to abused and neglected children in McHenry County? Join CASA of McHenry at one of two informational sessions to more about CASA and how to become an advocate for children.

CASA of McHenry County is a nonprofit organization which trains and supports volunteers to speak and act as advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children. They are trained to work within the child welfare and family court systems and are appointed by judges to individual cases.

With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in the foster care system, and that much more likely to find a safe and permanent home.

The first Advocate Recruitment Night will be held Tuesday, Jan. 29 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

at the Crystal Lake Public Library, 126 Paddock St. in Crystal Lake.

The second Advocate Recruitment Night will be held Wednesday, Feb. 6 at Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St. in Woodstock.

Current advocates will be on-hand to answer questions and share experiences.

For more information about the event or to learn more about CASA, email jorie@casamchenrycounty.org or call (815) 363-5920.
