The LGBT DC Center is holding an informational session this evening, June 22, at 6 pm on how to help lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender youth who are in the foster care system in the D.C. metro area.
Tonight’s session focuses on how you can become a CASA — Court Appointed Special Advocate — for LGBT youth in the foster care system. CASAs are appointed by a DC Family Court Judge to represent the best interest of a foster care child.
Some of the duties of a CASA include:
- Appearing at court hearings to make recommendations to the Court
- Continuing contacts with child, family, social workers and others to monitor court orders
- The overall being a great mentor to the child.
Please RSVP by emailing [email protected]. The Center is at 1318 U Street NW.
