ROANOKE,Va. -

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) needs your help. It's looking for new volunteers for its child advocacy centers.

Qualified volunteers help children in the court system as a result of child abuse and neglect. Those who work at CASA say volunteers are important because they serve as a voice for the child's best interest in the court system.

“It is extremely important for kids in foster care to feel like, I'm important; somebody cares about me, somebody is going to go and bat for me,” CASA Program Supervisor, Holly Peters.

Training classes begin in April. If you would like get involved contact the CASA office at Children's Trust.
