PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Funds will allow 19 CASA volunteers to attend training at the Children's Law Institute in Albuquerque. The funds
will pay for registration fees, transportation, hotel rooms and a few meals for four days (1/9 - 1/12/07). Volunteers
must have 15 hours of continued education hours to retain their certification status as a CASA, which they will
receive at this conference.

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND
CASA programs provide trained volunteer advocates for children in foster care because of parental abuse and
neglect. CASA's are appointed by a judge and assist the court in determining the best interest of the child by
investigating the case and submitting a report to the court. These reports ensure that the judge has adequate, up
to date information prior to making a ruling involving each child within his/her jurisdiction.
