What's New at CASA?
Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, provides a powerful voice for abused and neglected children. In 2015, there were 840 founded cases of abuse and neglect in Jackson County. In an overburdened system, these children risk slipping through the cracks and suffering from further abuse. But, CASA volunteers have the power to prevent this tragic reality.
Wenonoa Spivak, CASA of Jackson County's Deputy Director, joined CASA in 2013 right after college, Formerly a Peace Corps health volunteer in Honduras, Central America, her experience there instilled in her a belief in and dedication to social service and helping those most marginalized and at-risk. Wenonoa holds a B.S. in Public Health, a Master’s in Education, and is a doctoral candidate in Applied Linguistics. She will speak to us about the CASA program and volunteer opportunities to help with CASA's work.
