Each of our volunteers is required to complete 12 hours of continuing education each year they are serving. One of the easiest ways to complete these hours is through our CASA Cafe's.
Our CASA Cafe's are held every month 12:00 - 1:00 PM at the Child Advocate office located at 808 Austin Street (unless otherwise specified). Please call our office at 940-766-0552 to reserve your seat for the CASA Cafe you would like to attend.
