CASA volunteer needed for baby 'Ralph'

A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is needed to serve as a "Baby CASA" for 2-year-old Ralph. The toddler was removed from his parents' home due to unfit and unhealthy conditions, including feces and soiled diapers throughout the home, as well as a significant clutter of metal, tin cans and newspapers that the parents indicated they were saving in order to sell it as a means of supporting the family. Ralph also has asthma and had no pediatrician or other physician to help manage this condition.

Among the Baby CASA volunteer's responsibilities: Monitoring Ralph's progress in his foster home; working with his new pediatrician to ensure that proper asthma management treatment is implemented, as well as to make certain that he receives screening and services for age-appropriate developmental milestones; participating in monthly meetings with Baby CASA volunteers and other team members to discuss the progress of this little boy; assisting CPS in working with his parents, to determine whether treatment services, including parenting classes, might result in either or both of them being able to resume caring for Ralph; working with CPS to identify any appropriate relatives who might be able to assist the parents in their efforts to care for their child or to provide an adoptive home, if necessary; and making recommendations to the judge as to the best long-term placement for this little boy. CASA volunteers need to provide information to the court at report and review hearings throughout the life of a case.

Anyone interested in becoming a CASA volunteer for this case or a similar one, and making a difference in the life of a child, should contact the CASA office at 928-771-3165.
