We Need You!
The Board of Directors is made up of a diverse group of community citizens; the diversity of the group is based on age, sex, work history and cultural background. The CASA of Lewis & Clark and Broadwater Counties program is managed by the two staff currently employed with over sight by the Board of Directors. The program looks to provide diversity in its membership in all areas; advocates, friends of CASA, staff and Board members.
We would encourage Native American citizens to participate in our Board membership, but also as advocates and friends of CASA. Your input in meeting our mission and goals is important to our program and the children and families that we serve. Help us help you, by sharing your cultural needs and insight into family values and traditions. An educated CASA provides the understanding, support and advocacy to families and children of cultures not our own.
