LOCAL Closer Look: Friends of CASA Hawai'i

Posted on Sunday, April 23, 2023 by Jeanice Lee

Jeanice Lee talks to Robin Kennedy, President of Friends of CASA Hawai’i. CASAs help support the judiciary CASA Hawai’i program. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) are volunteer advocates for children who have been removed from their home due to abuse and are now on the care of the state court system and foster care. They focus on raising funds, so these abused kids get the services that they need. Kennedy shares about how CASAs bring normalcy and well-being for children in foster care. She talks about the training to become an advocate and the time commitment. Learn more CASA at (CASAHawaii.org) or call 808.954.8124
